Fast Growing in Florida
I live in south Florida, and when the plant arrived, it had 2 leaves. A bit concerned, it acclimated well and has grown about 20 or so leaves in the past several months.

With a distinct advantage of humidity and sunshine, this plant has thrived. I water it once a day with a small amount of water. I anxiously await flowering and fruit.

Very nice plant
For the price, this was a very nice size piper nigrum. The vine arrived on a small wood stake/trellis and had a well established root system. This plant was shipped to me in zone 7a in the middle of January and appears minimally stressed. For now, it is kept in my bathroom window where it can get the humidity it needs. I plan to take it outdoors in the summer. Hopefully then it will start to fruit!

Received i great condition
I didn't realize it would have to be a container plant until I read the instructions. I hope I don't kill it when it comes inside. Looks great outside.

Pretty plant, bad choice for my area.
We received our pepper plant in excellent condition and superbly packaged for transit as have been all our purchases from FGT.

Unfortunately, i totally misread the care and management requirements for the plant and let it die.

I intend to try again.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Black Pepper Plant

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Black Pepper Plant.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Black Pepper Plant gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Black Pepper Plant again after the transplant is complete.

when is the time to harvest peppercorns?
Moses B on Nov 25, 2014
Best Answer: Traditionally there are three crops to start six months after flowering and separated by two months.
This is; if the flowering starts in December / January , the first harvest will be in June, the second in August (/ September) and the third and last, will be in October (/ November)
You also need to have in consideration what kind of final product you want;
Pepper "Green", ”Black ", " White " or Red .
In the first case (Green) the drupe must be harvested when they reach 2/3 of development. (Not fully ripe)
To produce the (Black) pepper, should be harvested when fully developed, (a light green or yellowish)
To prepare the (White) pepper, the drupes should be harvested when the fruits have a yellow or red.
The (Red) pepper is prepared from the drupe with a flat and smooth shell ( skin ) and is slightly purplish red color
Each of these have a different form of processing to achieve the desired final product.
Please excuse my broken English ... hope I have answered your questions. Good farming

Building a tropical greenhouse and need to know if this is self pollinating. Or would I need a pollinator plant?
Hannah R on Mar 22, 2015
Best Answer: In their wild state (original) the pepper is a “dioica” plant (unissexuado)
The current plants ( the ones in the market and farming , not in wild state ) are bisexual (flowers with male and female organs)
The Pollination is naturally made . Good Farming/Gardening.
