Organic Mountain Pepper

I first discovered this Australian native growing at my property in Gippsland. My neighbour literally said, “See that plant over there, it is an Australian native mountain pepper and it grows wild under the Blackwood trees all over the place here”. Mountain pepper gives berries each March-April, which Sienna and I pick and dry for our pepper grinder.

For the teas, we use the gentler dried leaf. When it comes to growing native foods, the most knowledgeable people I know are Gil and Meredith at Grow Lightly in Korumburra – they are so passionate, have a food forest with dozens of species and are now creating fruit and veggie boxes of local produce, with a view to setting up a space at Coal Creek.
