Madagascar black pepper is a piper nigrum. In Madagascar, you produce  black pepper  in the  Tamatave region  and  voatsiperifery pepper  which is the  wild pepper of Madagascar.

Each peppercorn  that I select must have  a weight of 500g per liter .

But why, quite simply because it is the best quality of pepper . This is called  Astra quality in pepper export.

Here I will explain why Madagascar pepper is so unique, the colors of the berries, its drying and its use.

In France, only the fruits of Piper nigrum, including Black Pepper , Green Pepper, Red Pepper and White Pepper , can claim the name " pepper " without further clarification. It's an ordinance from 1945. I explained this regulation, why timut pepper cannot be called pepper. 

Compared to Voatsiperifery Pepper, a wild variety with vines with a risky harvest because it can grow up to 25 meters high, because it is a pepper that grows in the tops of trees in tropical forests .

Black Pepper is the simplest pepper to grow, ensuring more generous harvests than red or white pepper. With black peppercorns, you can have two harvests per year while white or red is one harvest per year. 

Read our article on:

You should know that pepper cultivation takes place in plantations with stakes up to 4 meters high , with manual harvesting and manual drying of the pepper.

There are 3 types of pepper drying . Manual drying , you will have a pepper with a beautiful pericarp and good spiciness because it is in the pericarp that the pepper will have the bite and spiciness. Generally, it takes 7-8 days to dry the peppercorn . Semi-mechanical drying , here the pepper will have manual and then mechanical drying. Mechanical drying is faster but you will simply remove its pericarp and you will have a pepper without bland spiciness and which is not very aromatic. 

The pepper is calibrated, put in dry containers and exported. 

Then, upon arrival in Europe, the pepper must be debacterized and packaged in France in our workshop.

When we talk about the history of pepper, you should know that the introduction of the pepper plant to Madagascar dates back to the early years of the 20th century , thanks to the efforts of Emile Prudhomme , pioneer of colonial agronomy. Under his leadership, pepper quickly became an emblematic crop of the island, contributing to its agricultural development.

Despite the difficulties encountered in the 1930s, notably with Muller's disease which affected pepper plantations, the successful introduction of a resistant variety, Belontoeng, ensured the sustainability of pepper cultivation in Madagascar.

However, despite its exceptional quality, Madagascar Pepper often remains unknown on the international market, eclipsed by other more widely marketed varieties. It is high time to recognize this culinary treasure at its true value.

In Brazil, I discovered pepper plantations close to coffee plantations. It was really in Bahia that I discovered the same plantations in Madagascar.


Black peppercorns from Madagascar are the best pepper in the worldfor me, for everyday cooking.

An exceptional black pepper with a good spiciness and a beautiful aromatic power .

You will discover a pepper with fresh notes, woody notes and above all a citric touch. 

It offers a nice depth in the mouth with a nice length. Its spicy touch will reveal its unique notes.  


But how to properly use Madagascar black pepper? This is the question everyone is asking.

I would like to tell you, you have to grind it at the last moment and, above all, ideally crush it for a unique culinary experience, for a unique experience with incredible freshness and spiciness.

It is a pepper that goes very well with red meat, white meat and especially fatty fish such as mackerel, sardines, anchovies, tuna, eel and salmon.

It excels in sauces, especially tomato and brown sauces. I do not recommend it in white sauces because it will color the sauce.

It turns out to be the star in vegetable-based dishes such as chard, red cabbage, lentils, chickpeas... It is also ideal for marinades and cold meats, combined with white cheeses, and to enhance fruit in salad, compote, syrup or jam: strawberries, cherries, figs, peaches, pineapple as well as in chocolate desserts: creams, mousses, fondants, cakes.

In fact, it’s Comptoir de Toamasina’s best seller.

Here I offer you 8 recipes that I like to use with Malagasy pepper:

On our blog we explained the maillard reaction to you. And before each use, we advise you to roast the pepper as in the video for an explosion of flavors. 
Roasting black pepper is essential to intensify its flavors and aroma.
In this video that I made you will discover the traditional method of roasting black pepper used by chefs and cooking enthusiasts.
By heating the peppercorns to their core, we allow their flavors and aromatic power to flourish thanks to the Maillard reaction, responsible for browning and enhancing flavors.
This technique is also popular for preparing cumin powder.

The best method for roasting pepper is to heat a pan over medium heat, adding oil as necessary to flavor a meat. Once the pan is hot, the peppercorns are added, making sure they are not touching, and are stirred regularly for even roasting. When the kernels begin to pop like popcorn, after one to two minutes, they are removed and dried on a paper towel. Then they can be crushed and added to the meat before serving.

Roasting reveals the aromatic power of black pepper, while the oil is infused with its aromas during infusion over medium or low heat. It is important to maintain a consistent temperature throughout the pan during the roasting process.


To preserve the aromatic power of Madagascar black pepper, we recommend that you follow its 4 basic principles to preserve it month after month:

  1. Store it in an airtight container if you purchased it in our kilo packaging: To prevent moisture and air from penetrating and altering the flavor of the pepper, store it in an airtight container such as a glass jar or stainless steel container.
  2. Avoid direct sunlight: Madagascar pepper should be protected from direct sunlight, as it can alter its color and aroma. Store it in a cool, dark place in your kitchen.
  3. Do not grind in advance: Malagasy black pepper retains its flavor and aroma longer if ground just before use. Avoid grinding it in advance and store it whole.
  4. Avoid excessive heat: Malagasy pepper should be protected from excessive heat, as it can alter its flavor. Avoid storing it near a heat source such as a stove or a sunny window.

By following these precautions, you can keep Madagascar pepper fresh and flavorful for a long time.
