Tasmanian Mountain Pepper Male.
Pepperberry, also known as Mountain Pepper, is an evergreen shrub often used as a culinary spice. Both the leaves and fruit have a strong peppery taste and are used to flavour curries and meats. In the Spring, Pepperberry produces small yellow or creamy white flowers that turn into red pepper berries over the Autumn season if both male and female plants are present. These berries eventually turn black when they ripen.
It can be found in Aboriginal cuisine as a food flavouring, as well as in traditional medicine as a treatment for skin disorders, colic and stomach ache. It is native to the woodlands and cool temperate rainforests of Australia’s south-eastern region.
The Pepperberry grows best in lime-free, fertile, moist and well-drained soils in semi-shade positions sheltered from the hot Summer sun and drying winds.
Condition the soil with plenty of organic matter before planting, and ensure the ground is mulched before Summer.
For viable growing seeds both a male and female plant are required.
