Pink Pepper tree is a medium-sized evergreen tree, typical of tropical and subtropical environments. It grows well on both arid and humid soils.

The peppercorn-sized fruits have a bright pink colour and consist of up to 10% essential oils, particularly known for their antibacterial properties. Pink peppercorns have been used in Madagascar since ancient times as an anti-inflammatory agent, supporting the treatment of bronchitis.
Interestingly, Pink Pepper is unrelated to true pepper (Piper), as it belongs to a different botanical genus.
