Black Pepper Plant
Black pepper is a flowering vine in the family Piperaceae, cultivated for its fruit, which is usually dried and used as a spice and seasoning. The fruit, known as a peppercorn when dried, is dark red when fully mature and contains a single seed. Black pepper is the world's most ubiquitous and traded spice, and is found and used in cuisines all around the world.
Keep plant in partial shade since it cannot stand direct sunlight. Give it plenty of water, however make sure that the pot drains well, since the plant is prone to root rot. It also prefers high humidity and hot temperatures. The pepper fruit is harvested before maturity and dried in the hot sun. After drying it becomes wrinkled and black.
