Growing in Arizona: A tropical vine, with attractive foliage. Black pepper is a common spice and a staple on table around the world. They can be grown in a pot or raised bed in acid soil such as Canadian Peat. The plants need shade when hot, cold protection below high-30s. Black pepper is the dried unripe fruit of small one-seeded, berrylike drupes about 50 to a catkin. They are usually picked when the first ‘berry’ begins to turn red. Before drying they may be used fresh green. When dried they become the black wrinkled peppercorns. They will flower in the spring and fruit ripen in summer. Excellent for the collector or the tropical spice novice as this is one of the easiest spices to grow. Makes a great container plant.
