Leaves and Berries of the Mountain Pepper - Tasmannia lanceolata

Top
Native to cool, moist forest areas of south-eastern Australia, the mountain pepper is a shrub or small tree to 5 metres.

The plant’s dark green, glossy leaves and pea-sized ppurple-black berries have a hot, peppery flavour and unique aroma. The fruits and leaves can be used to flavour sauces, chutneys, meats, cheeses, pate, breads, pastas etc.

CSIRO is working with Aboriginal communities and Australian industry to help develop the bush foods industry. CSIRO is seeking ways to lower production costs and increase product quality in order to meet the growing demand for a variety of food ingredients from Australian native plants, seeds and fruits.
