Black Pepper Experience


                                          I  have been using black pepper for my spices in almost all my choice dishes.  I always wanted to know what does it look like and how it is being process. 
                     When I visited my relative in La Union. My questions about the pepper makes me wonder more when I saw some vines in all the tree. Swarming like virus about to consume the trunk. When my aunt giving me the lecture about it. I couldn't believe my eyes. It started with a small branch. As it continue to grow it continue to cling to the tree. She added that the older and stronger the tree will be better to produce plenty of tiny seeds.Just like the picture. It is ready for harvest. It is good for air drying. And now you will have a black pepper ready for usage.
