It needs lots of water, without standing in it, otherwise the roots of the three rotten. The Madagascar pepper plant is tall and can reach a height of up to 20 meters. For this reason it is now trimmed to 2.5 meters. Earlier, the harvest was either dangerous for the harvesters or for the forest, as the hosts were simply felled to get these precious Voatsiperifery peppers.
The Voatsiperifery Peppers are the red ripe berries of the Tsiperifery tree. They are oval and have a stalk. After harvest, they change their color while they dry. First red they turn to brown-black.
