It is a Frenchman, Emile Prud’homme who introduced pepper at the beginning of the 20th century. He was Director in charge of the National Institute of Colonial Agronomy and his mission was to plant coffee, tobacco and pepper crops on the Island. It was on the island of Nosy.B (north-west) that it was introduced, then in the Sambirano. It is currently grown on the southeast coast of the main island.
In Late 30s, a disease (Muller’s disease) attacked pepper plants in Madagascar. More resistant varieties had to be introduced, like that of ‘Belontoeng’, originating from Lampung (Indonesia). The pepper is called ‘Dipoivatra’ in the Malagasy language. Pepper is harvested twice a year, May / July and October / November.
