Where does the Voatisperifery pepper come from? Which plant is it from?
Voatsiperifery (Piper Borbonense) is the fruit of a tropical vine plant of the genus pepper called "Tsiperifery". It grows in the tropical jungle in the south - east of Madagascar. The pepper plant prefers tropical climate. That means, it needs a lot of water, but it should not be in the water, otherwise your roots will rot. The high humidity of the jungle provides the Voatsiperifery pepper with the water he needs to thrive. The Voatsiperifery pepper plant can grow up to 20 meters high, which makes a harvest very difficult. For this reason, the vine plant is regularly trimmed to 2.5 meters. In the past, trees were mostly felled to get the Voatsiperifery pepper. That was doubly bad, not only was the jungle cut down but the pepper plants were destroyed too.
Voatsiperifery peppers are the small red ripe fruits that grow in panicles of the tsiperifery tree. They have an oval shape and a small stem. They are similar to the Kubeben pepper but are much smaller. After the harvest of the still fresh red Voatsiperifery pepper it is dried. It turns brown - black like its kindred black pepper.
