Black Pepper is a perennial climbing vine cultivated for its fruit, known as the peppercorn, which is dried and used as a spice and seasoning. Black pepper fruits are the source of one of the world's most widely and frequently used spices. Depending on the time of harvest and the method of processing, all 4 types of peppercorns (black, white, green and red) can be harvested from the same plant. As an understory plant in its native habitat of India, Piper nigrum prefers dappled light, regular moisture, and well-draining soil. Use a trellis for support. (Pot size: 1 gallon)
