Fresh Flavor…and Home-Grown Peppercorns

Why Black Pepper Plants?

  • It’s an incredible climbing vine fits well anywhere.
  • The Black Pepper’s shiny green leaves are offset by stunning red fruit.
  • Fresh, delicious, home-grown pepper enhances any recipe.

Stage your own Italian-inspired garden by strategically planting Black Pepper along trellises, fencing, or even outside walls. The side shoots creep up quickly, sprouting tons of lovely almond-shaped leaves, beautifully filling in space.

The payoff is fresh pepper that will embolden the flavor of just about anything your imagination can cook up. Pick peppercorns when green for black pepper or harvest when ripened and remove the inner seed for a spicier, white pepper. No matter what you choose to do, the Black Pepper Plant offers variety that will spice up the life in your garden.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Place your Pepper Plant in a location with well-draining soil. These plants thrive best in high temperature areas with frequent humidity and rainfall, as well as full to partial sun (4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day). From there, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Make sure the plant is properly positioned in the hole. Begin to back fill the hole, applying water to remove air pockets. Water again after you’ve finished to fully settle the soil.

When growing the pepper plant indoors, ensure you place it in location that receives a minimum of 4 hours of sunlight daily. The area also needs to be humid so you can emulate an outdoor or greenhouse type of environment. You can use a humidifier or mist the plant daily to accomplish this.

When selecting a container for your pepper plant, be sure it has plenty of holes in the bottom as drainage is essential. The pot size should be 2 times the size of the one it initially came in.

2. Watering: Make sure you place your plant in a well-drained container where the water will not sit. Water your plant deeply once or twice weekly, depending on the size of the container and plant. If you’re not sure when to water, simple check the soil down to about 3 inches – if the soil is dry here, it’s time to water.

3. Fertilizing: Pepper Plants require regular fertilization. It’s best to feed your plant twice a month with a nitrogen fertilizer formula like 10-10-10 and follow the package instructions for best results.
