How Does Madagascar Black Pepper Grow?

Madagascar black pepper, botanically known as Piper nigrum, is the fruit of a climbing vine of the Piperaceae family. It grows on a tree with rough and cracked bark that facilitates its ascent, often up to four meters in height. Piper nigrum requires a tropical climate with high temperatures and humidity as well as an alternation of shade and light to develop properly. Post-harvest handling will give the pepper its final color and flavors.

The History of Madagascar Black Pepper

In Madagascar, the cultivation of pepper was introduced in the early 20th century by the Frenchman Émile Prudhomme following a mission to Java (Ndriantoninanahary S.M., 2002). He was then the director of the National Institute of Colonial Agronomy and in charge of developing coffee, tobacco, and pepper cultivation on the island. He wrote about it in 1899 in an "agricultural notice": "There have been no serious attempts to cultivate pepper in Madagascar yet, but there is reason to believe in the success of this vine on most of the East coast." The introduction of pepper began in Nossi-Be and then developed in Sambirano.

In the late 1930s, Muller's disease (collar rot) attacked Malagasy pepper plants. It was necessary to introduce a new, more resistant variety of pepper. The variety known as "Belontoeng," originating from Lampung in Indonesia, was chosen.
