Question & Answer

Will the pepper tree survive winter in Sydney? Not sure if ok to put in the ground now summer is over. Don't want to lose it over winter? From: WARRIMOO NSW

It would depend on what your frosts are like in the part of Sydney where you live because they are very sensitive to frosts. Since it is still young perhaps keep it growing on in a bigger pot that you can move to a protected position incase you do get a snap of cold morning before planting it out in Spring. But if you have a nice protected position then you would be better to plant out right away.Good Luck :) #BlackPepper3306

Comments: - Easy to grow, requires little attention and takes up a shady spot.  You can easily process the peppercorns, I get a small amount of pepper each year (dry weight of 68g this year) very strong flavour.The peppercorns can be planted but you get very low germination and they really don't like to be repotted.Mine is a sprawling variety which refuses to grow up a pole.

Bought off ebay as seedling not long ago and planted in pot and had it inside but didn't do well.  I put it outside under the front verander which is west facing and getting all the afternoon sun.  So far it's still alive.
