  • What is Voatsiperifery wild pepper?

    Voatsiperifery pepper (Piper Borbonense) is a variety of wild pepper with a tail that is 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 virgin forests of the island. 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? : Growing Voatsiperifery pepper is very lucrative. It brings in more money than any other crop in the country.

    The harvest of Voatsiperifery pepper

    The harvest period of wild pepper from Madagascar is between September and December. After having travelled a long and difficult path in the virgin forest, the grower must climb to the top of the pepper trees. The height of the pepper berries makes it difficult to pick them. The liana that shelters the pepper climbs up to 20 m high on the tree, and the pepper is concentrated 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 make one kilo of Voatsiperifiable pepper.

    David Vanille's opinion: I have chosen to offer you the wild Voatsiperifery pepper powder. When ground, it retains all its woody, tart, spicy and spicy aromas. To be used preferably at the end of cooking, it goes well with all types of cooking.

    Differences between red, white and black Voatsiperifery pepper

    As with the vast majority of peppers, there are 3 types of Voatsiperifery pepper

    • The red Madagascar wild pepper is a late-harvested pepper. It is less spicy than black Voatsiperifery pepper, but has developed more complex aromas.
    • The black Voatsiperifery pepper was picked green and took on its black colour when drying. It has an intense taste.
    • The white Voatsiperifery pepper is the inside of the red pepper from which the pericarp has been removed. It has a round seed shape and subtle flavours.

    The wild pepper from Madagascar nowadays

    The cultivation of wild Voatsiperifery pepper is very lucrative and attracts a lot of attention. 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.

    A risk of deforestation

    Faced with the difficulty of reaching the 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 consequent risk of seeing certain natural species, including the Tsiperifery, disappear.

    For a sustainable cultivation of wild pepper from Madagascar

    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 solutions for sustainable crops. Raising awareness and accompanying the farmers as well as the cultivation of Tsiperifery is the solution to avoid deforestation and the disappearance of this species.
