The Voatsiperifery pepper grows exclusively in the wild virgin forests of Madagascar. The ripe red fruits grow on the young shoots of the up to 20-metre-high tree in the middle of the tropical jungle. This rarity is harvested exclusively by small farmers in a traditional way by hand, mainly on the east coast of the island. The annual harvest amounts to just 1.5 - 2 tons. Voatsiperifery pepper, also known as bourbon pepper, is not cultivatable and grows only wild in the tropical rainforests of the island.
The taste of Voatsiperifery pepper is unique and a real treat. Its slightly earthy note, a pleasantly warm pungency and its increasingly fruity, lemony notes are perfect with game, lamb, dark poultry and dark sauces.
