Voatsiperifery pepper (Piper Borbonense) is a variety of wild peppercorn with a tail 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 virgin forests. Growing in very humid regions, it is waterlogged, which makes it fragile.
This pepper is a rare variety, with woody and earthy notes with some citrus and flower aromas.
Did you know that? The Voatsiperifery pepper crop is very lucrative. It brings in more money than any other crop in the country.
The harvest period for wild pepper from Madagascar is between September and December. After having covered a long and difficult path in the virgin forest, the grower must climb to the top of the pepper trees. The height at which the pepper berries are found makes it difficult to pick them. The liana that shelters the pepper climbs up to 20 m high on the tree, and the pepper concentrates on the heights of the lianas.
Some bunches of wild pepper from Madagascar will still be green, while others may already be too mature. It is therefore difficult to know before climbing whether a tree will give 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 obtain one kilo of Voatsiperifery pepper.
David Vanille's opinion: I have chosen to offer you the wild Voatsiperifery pepper powder. When ground, it retains all its woody, tangy, spicy and spicy aromas. Preferably used at the end of cooking, it goes well with all types of cooking.
As for the vast majority of peppers, there are 3 kinds of Voatsiperifery peppers
The cultivation of wild Voatsiperifery pepper is very lucrative and is therefore coveted. The quality of this pepper is such that the demand is growing. To meet this demand, some growers use processes that are harmful to the species.
Faced with the difficulty of reaching the pepper, some growers have decided to cut down the lianas 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 seeing certain natural species, including the Tsiperifery, disappear.
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 cultivation solutions. Raising awareness and accompanying farmers as well as the cultivation of Tsiperifery is the solution to avoid deforestation and the disappearance of this species.
