Voatsiperifery pepper (Piper Borbonense) is a variety of wild long-tailed pepper found on the island of Madagascar. It grows on the vines of the tsiperifery tree, a species of the Piperaceae family, which grows in the island's rainforests. Growing in very humid regions, it is saturated with water, which makes it fragile.
This pepper is a rare variety, with woody and earthy notes with some citrus and floral aromas.
Did you know that? Voatsiperifery pepper cultivation is very lucrative. It pays more than any other culture in the country.
Madagascar's wild pepper harvest period is between September and December. After a long and difficult journey through the rainforest, the farmer has to climb up the pepper trees. The height of the pepper berries makes it difficult to pick. The vine that shelters the pepper climbs up to 20 m high on the tree, and the pepper concentrates on the heights of the vines.
Some wild Madagascar pepper clusters will still be green, while others may already be too mature. It is therefore difficult to know before climbing whether a tree will produce a good harvest or not.
Voatsiperifery pepper can be picked green or red.
Did you know that: It takes 10 kilos of fresh berries to make one kilo of Voatsiperifiery pepper.

The cultivation of Voatsiperifery wild pepper is very lucrative and is therefore highly coveted. The quality of this pepper is increasing the demand. To answer this question, some farmers use processes that are harmful to the species.
Faced with the difficulty of reaching pepper, some growers have decided to cut the vines or their stakes to harvest the berries without having to climb. This practice, which is harmful to the natural environment, has a direct impact on soil hygrometry, with the risk of the disappearance of certain natural species, including the Tsiperifery.
Harvesting Voatsiperifery pepper without impacting the ecosystem is possible. The QualiREG network composed of researchers and members of the University of Antananarivo has been working on sustainable crop solutions. Raising awareness and supporting farmers and growing Tsiperifery is the solution to avoid deforestation and the extinction of this species.
