Sichuan pepper tree is native to the Sichuan region of China, it is an exotic tree which offers a highly prized Asian spice. Its thorny silhouette rises up to 4 meters in height when mature, adorned with delicate white flowers in spring which give way to tasty bright red fruits from the end of October.
The leaves and fruits of this tree seduce with their captivating scent, while its berries contain a spice with unique flavors.

The shells of the berries of this spicy pepper tree offer a unique taste experience, causing both a slight tingling and irritating sensation in the mouth, followed by a refreshing lemony note at the end of the tasting.

Formerly used in traditional medicine to relieve toothache, Sichuan pepper is now popular for its stimulating properties on blood circulation, as well as its beneficial action against digestive problems such as bloating and flatulence. Its generous harvest from its third year of growth makes it a valuable resource for lovers of refined spices and fans of natural remedies.

Upon receipt, plant it in a 3 to 4 liter pot with good horticultural soil, then pack it well and water it thoroughly.

Très beaux jeunes plants

Conditionnement top, les plants me sont parvenus en forme et n'ont eu aucun mal à s'acclimater. Suivez les conseils sur la page et tout se passera bien.


Beaux plants

Bonne qualité des plants très bien protégés, livrés avec un peu de terrau et ensachés au pied , ils n'ont pas du tout souffert du rempotage et ils grandissent et grossissent du tronc.

Très beau plant

Je l ai repiqué directement dans un pot de 5 litres puis en pleine terre au bout de 3 mois.
Le poivrier du Sichuan pousse a merveille.
