Fresh Flavor...and Home-Grown Peppercorns
Why Black Pepper Plants?
- It's an incredible climbing vine fits well anywhere.
- The Black Pepper's shiny green leaves are offset by stunning red fruit.
- Fresh, delicious, home-grown pepper enhances any recipe.
Stage your own Italian-inspired garden by strategically planting Black Pepper along trellises, fencing, or even outside walls. The side shoots creep up quickly, sprouting tons of lovely almond-shaped leaves, beautifully filling in space.
The payoff is fresh pepper that will embolden the flavor of just about anything your imagination can cook up. Pick peppercorns when green for black pepper or harvest when ripened and remove the inner seed for a spicier, white pepper. No matter what you choose to do, the Black Pepper Plant offers variety that will spice up the life in your garden.

Black Pepper Plant Pollination
Black Pepper Plants are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Black Pepper Plant will drastically increase the size of your crop.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: When growing the pepper plant indoors, ensure you place it in a location that receives a minimum of 4 hours of sunlight daily. The area also needs to be humid so you can emulate an outdoor or greenhouse type of environment. You can use a humidifier or mist the plant daily to accomplish this.
When selecting a container for your pepper plant, be sure it has plenty of holes in the bottom as drainage is essential. The pot size should be 2 times the size of the one it initially came in.
Outdoors, place your Pepper Plant in a location with well-draining soil. These plants thrive best in high-temperature areas with frequent humidity and rainfall, as well as full to partial sun (4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day). From there, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.
Make sure the plant is properly positioned in the hole. Begin to backfill the hole, applying water to remove air pockets. Water again after you’ve finished to fully settle the soil.
2. Watering: Make sure you place your plant in a well-drained container where the water will not sit. Water your plant deeply once or twice weekly, depending on the size of the container and plant. If you're not sure when to water, simply check the soil down to about 3 inches - if the soil is dry here, it's time to water.
3. Fertilizing: Pepper Plants require regular fertilization. It’s best to feed your plant twice a month with a nitrogen fertilizer formula like 10-10-10 and follow the package instructions for the best results.

I was very happy that this item arrived quickly, and healthy. There was a small amount of damage where the leaf was underneath the zip tie, but otherwise it was perfect.
Excellent condition, fast shipping. very happy with my purchase.
THE PLANT ARRIVED IN GOOD CONDITION. PLANTED IT. IT LOOKS OK NOW. I HOLD OPNION UNTIL IT FLOWERS AND HAS PEPPER CORN SEED
Great - gifted to a friend that cooks a lot and he was tremendously impressed. At first, he thought "oh another pepper plant" but then he realized it was black pepper that he could grow and grind himself and he was shocked!
The plant arrived healthy and happy. It's our first time owning a Black Pepper Plant so I researched how to grow one. This is super critical because it's easy to over water this type of plant. They're more delicate than you think, but there are tons of helpful guides and videos. I will be ordering more!
