Peppercorn or Pepperina Tree

Schinus molle

This plant is not on the Australian Noxious Weed List

The Pepperina/Peppercorn Tree (Schinus molle) is an old-fashioned tree but a very popular one. Known as Pepperina in Queensland and  Peppercorn in New South Wales, this is one of the toughest trees and is very often seen in drought and heavy frost areas.

Growing to a height of  12 meters (40ft) with ferny foliage, this plant has a pungent smell when the foliage is crushed and small (almost inconspicuous) flowers followed by colourful red and white berries. I have seen a reference saying that the berries are inedible and will make you ill, but I grew up chewing these berries with no ill effect and I have seen them offered for sale as a ‘pepper’.

Offered as a packet of 20 seeds with grownotes.

 

All my seed is posted in bubble wrap protection.
