Its name comes from "Voa" which means "fruit" and tsiperifery which is the name of the plant in Malagasy. It is a wild pepper with stalk and it is complex, wooded, tangy and spicy. It grows on big trees from the Tropical forest in hot and humid regions of the South east of the Madagascar Island, where the harvest is carried out by local communities, entirely by hand.
Suggestion for use:
This pepper is ideal with grilled red meats. Its woody perfume brings out the meat's best qualities. It also marries well with pork, lamb and foie gras. On the sweet side, it is excellent in a red berry fruit salad or chocolate lava cake.
