(This is one more little piece of advice that can make a big difference in choosing what to plant in your own dream farm. We will keep on posting this type of tips because they are easier to keep in mind. So keep visiting this web site.)

ย Plant A Crop That Keeps Well, Easy to Transport
If your farm is far from the market and it would be very expensive to transport your harvest, chose a crop that is light to transport and one that will keep for a long time without cold storage.
Is there such a crop? Yes. One is the black pepper. The dried pepper corn are very light and they can keep for months without any refrigeration. Black pepper also commands a high price.
Another plus in growing black pepper is that it can be made to climb the trunk of live trees, like the mahogany trees at the Teresa Orchard & Nursery in Teresa, Rizal. And once the plant is established, it has a long productive life.
The Paniyur variety from India produces long fruit spikes so that it is much more productive than the ordinary variety. You can source your planting materials from Teresa Orchard & Nursery in Teresa, Rizal. (0917-841-5477).

  1. I like to plant this type of pepper. Is it easy to propagate it? The soil conditions? the location? terrain? Appreciate for your reply.


  2. Black pepper can be grown in many parts of the Philippines. Best to plant it in fairly rich soil that is well drained, not waterlogged. If the soil is not fertile, it could be enriched with the application of processed organic fertilizer.

    One recommended variety is the Paniyur from India which produces long fruit spikes. Planting materials are now available at Teresa Orchard & Nursery. You can call Rose at 0915-434-4216 for more information.
