• Piper Longum Indian Long Pepper - Peppercorn seeds

    Piper longum 
    Indian Long Pepper 

    How would you like to grow the plant that produces the worlds oldest spice?  Small white flowers form along pendulous spikes that hang among arrow shaped forest green leaves.  Flowers give way to long hanging clusters of berries that turn from green, to orange to stunning red when ripe. It looks its best in a hanging basket or grown on a trellis. Peppercorns can be sun dried and ground as pepper. This pepper variety produces a smaller berry and hotter ground pepper than the traditional nigrum.
