  • A climber that grows to a height or length of 10 m or more
  • Once the main stem is established it grows many side shoots to create a bushy column
  • Almond-shaped, tapering towards the tip, dark green and shiny above, paler green below, arranged alternately on the stems. Borne in clusters along flowering stalks known as spikes
  • 50–150 whitish to yellow-green flowers are produced on a spike
  • Round, berry-like, up to 6 mm in diameter, green at first but turning red as they ripen, each containing a single seed. 50–60 fruits are borne on each spike
  • Fruits are picked when green and immature to produce green pepper; when fully grown but still green and shiny to produce black pepper; and when slightly riper to produce white pepper (for which the fruits are also soaked to remove the fleshy outer layer)


  • The fruits of Piper nigrum are used to make black pepper
  • This hotly pungent spice is one of the earliest known and most widely used spices in the world today
  • It is used as flavouring, particularly for savoury foods, meat dishes, sauces and snack foods
  • It is also used as a table condiment.
  • Black pepper, white pepper and green peppercorns are all produced from Piper nigrum fruits, but are harvested at different times and are processed differently
  • Black pepper is also used to produce pepper oil and oleoresin, which are frequently used in the production of convenience foods and sometimes also for perfumery
  • Of lesser importance is the use of preserved immature green pepper or fresh pepper fruits, which are eaten more like a vegetable
  • In Ayurvedic medicine, black pepper has been used to aid digestion, improve appetite, treat coughs, colds, breathing and heart problems, colic, diabetes, anaemia and piles
  • Stomach ailments such as dyspepsia, flatulence, constipation and diarrhoea are all treated with black pepper, which may be mixed with other substances such as castor oil, cow's urine or ghee
