  • What is Voatsiperifery red pepper?

    Voatsiperifery pepper is a very rare wild pepper.

    Native to the primary and virgin forests of Madagascar, it is a real pepper. The liana on which it grows can reach 20 to 30 meters high.

    Voatsiperifery red pepper is very aromatic. It is very fragile because it is waterlogged and requires a lot of care during harvesting.

    Did you know that? The color of the pepper indicates its level of maturity. The red color is a sign of great maturity. With this Voatsiperifery pepper, I present you a pepper equivalent to late harvest in the wine industry

    David Vanilla's choice: I have chosen to present this Voatsiperifery red pepper for its unique flavour. A rare pepper from Madagascar, harvested by hand, which seduces by its great maturity.

    The harvest of Voatsiperifery wild pepper

    The harvest of Voatsiperifery red pepper is delicate. First of all, it is necessary to go to the heart of the rainforest following paths that are difficult to walk.

    Once there, the pickers have to climb up the lianas until they reach the berries. One of the difficulties in harvesting this rare pepper is the fact that on the same creeper, the bunches of berries may have reached different levels of maturity. It is therefore necessary to sort the ripe berries from those still too young to be picked.

    On average, you need to pick 10 kilos of fresh berries to obtain one kilo of Voatsiperifery pepper.

    The differences between the colours of pepper

    This pepper from Madagascar can be picked white, black or red.

    The red voatsiperifery pepper is of high quality. Less pungent than black pepper, it has developed more intense aromas.

    The black Voatsiperifery pepper, was picked green on the liana before being dried. It is during the drying process that it took its dark color.

    The white Voastiperifery pepper is actually the inside of the red pepper. It is a seed with subtle flavours.


    The origins of Voatsiperifery pepper

    It is difficult to define the exact origins of this pepper as it is so rare. Unrecognized until a few Malagasy people themselves, the wild Voatsiperifery pepper has only recently known its hour of glory. Today, the greatest chefs are honouring it. The production being relatively low, this pepper is not likely to become a common variety... and so much the better.

    Voastsiperifery red pepper nowadays

    Pepper still unknown a few years ago, Voatsiperifery wild pepper is today very popular. However, production is not sufficient to meet the demand

    Risky harvesting methods

    Some farmers have tried to increase their crops by changing the way they pick the berries. In order not to go up to the vines anymore, some do not hesitate to cut them. Others do not sort the berries and therefore produce a less quality pepper

    Actions for a reasoned culture

    The risk of these practices would be to harm the survival of this species. In order to preserve it, several local research groups are trying to find solutions to domesticate this wild pepper so that farmers can grow it without harming the wild species.

    Other uses of Madagascar pepper
