  • What is Tasmanian pepper?

    Tasmanian pepper is the fruit of the shrub Tasmania lanceolata. Although it is called a "shrub", this pepper plant can still grow up to 5 meters high. It is mainly found in the south of Australia, in the lower mountainous regions at Tasmanian Sea level.

    This shrub of the winteriaceae family has a dark green foliage with oblong leaves ? The Tasmanian pepper berries are found inside the fruits of the shrub, which are distinguished by their dark purple colour and the size of a pea.

    David Vanille's choice: I have chosen to offer you this pepper still may be known for its exceptional fruity aromas. A rare and powerful pepper, native to Australia, which has its place in your kitchen.

    Harvesting Tasmanian pepper

    Tasmania lanceolata is a variety of wild pepper. Tasmanian pepper is harvested by hand. Once picked, the pepper berries are dried. They retain their beautiful purple colour and crumble.

    Generally, the average size of a Tasmanian pepper berry is between 4 and 5 mm, however, some pepper berries can be around 9 to 10 mm, they are then called "extra bold" to mark their rarity.

    The differences between real pepper and false pepper

    Tasmanian pepper is what we call "false pepper." In fact, what differentiates a false pepper from a real pepper is the way the berries are placed on the tree. Real pepper grows in a creeper while false pepper grows inside the fruit of a tree or shrub.


    The origins of Tasmanian pepper

    Tasmanian pepper is native to the Australian bush. It was used by the Aborigines. The Tasmania lanceolata was also a very popular variety among this people. The berries, the leaves, but also the bark, were either consumed or used for its medicinal virtues.

    In 1803, the English colonized the island of Tasmania and it was Robert Brown, botanist and explorer, who discovered this shrub. He decided to bring it back to English Cornwall in 1805.

    Tasmanian pepper today

    Tasmanian pepper is a rare pepper, moreover the global production of this pepper is 5 tons per year.

    Other uses

    Tasmanian pepper has medicinal properties that are specific to the vast majority of peppers. Its leaves and bark can be served as a decoction for their stimulating effects. Pepper berries have the same virtues as pepper:

    • Antimicrobial
    • Antifungals
    • Repellents
    • Pesticides

    It is also said that Tasmanian pepper has aphrodisiac properties.

    The Tasmania lanceolata is also used as a hedge. The density of its foliage makes it an excellent natural windbreak.

    How to use Tasmanian pepper in cooking?

    Tasmanian pepper is an essential part of Australian Aboriginal cuisine and "Bushfood", a contemporary revisited version of Aboriginal cuisine. In Australia, it is used to flavor kangaroo steak, emu steak or ostrich meat.

    This pepper goes very well with aromatic herbs or Timut pepper. Game, red meat, white meat, poultry, but also fish... this pepper is used every day. It is excellent to flavour a white fish papillote or a tuna or beef tartar.
