Voatsiperifery is an incredibly rare pepper with strong, pine forest nose, and medium heat – distinguished by light, zesty flavours. Voatsiperifery  pepper grows in the hot and humid South-Eastern Madagascan rainforests, where the pepper vines can reach 20m tall, and only grow in the wild, making picking very difficult.

The unripe berries are all hand-harvested by local village communities, and left to dry in the sun which turns the berries black. The name Voatsiperifery comes from the two words "voa" meaning fruit and "tsiperifery", the name of climbing plants in Madagascar.

Voatsiperifery is a beautiful pepper – and a great to lift any dish, whether meat or fish, particularly rich oily fish, or pork. The pepper is also good in sweet dishes, whether sprinkled over a fruit salad, or used to cut through the richness of a chocolate cake.
