Tasmanian Pepperberry - FEMALE

A native to Tasmania (Tasmannia lanceolata) forming a shrub or small tree 1-3m. Grown for it's edible pepper corns, which when dried are a great substitute for black pepper. Form an attractive tree, with red stem and small ovate dark green peppery leaves. Small white flowers in summer, forming berries in Autumn. The female forms the berries, but needs a male nearby to pollinate. At a guess one might need 1 male for every 4-6 females. Requires water-retentive soil, and prefers part shade. Tolerates cold and snow quite well.
