TO KNOW MORE
Black Pepper (Piper nigrum) is the most common spice across the world and is known as the ‘Queen of Spices’. The word ‘Pepper‘ derives from the Sanskrit word pippali, and was figuratively used to mean ‘spirit’ or ‘energy’. Black Pepper is native to South and Southeast Asia and has been known in Indian cuisine since 2,000 B.C. Peppercorns were a highly prized commercial goods, often referred to as ‘black gold’ and used as commodity money. It was introduced to Europe by Alexander the Great, with the Arab civilisation controlling its trade until the fall of the Byzantine Empire, when Venice became the centre of the spice trade. The high value of the Black Pepper motivated the search for other trade routes.
Black Pepper belongs to the family Piperaceae and is a climbing species that can grow more than 4m. The Black Pepper vine grows profusely, taking roots easily where trailing stems touch the ground. The leaves are alternate, entire, 5 to 10cm long and 3 to 6cm wide. The flowers of Black Pepper are small and produced on pendulous spikes 4 to 8cm long at the leaf nodes, the spikes lengthening up to 7 to 15cm as the fruit ripens.
