Natural Occurrence in Australia 

Tasmannia lanceolata grows up to 5 metres tall and is found in the lowland rainforests through to the mountains of Tasmania as well as some parts of south east Australia (Victoria, New South Wales). Interestingly there are both male and female trees. The flowers are small and yellow to creamy white in colour, producing from September through to January. In March or April the black berry like fruit appears on the female plant and contains 10-18 seeds. The entire plant is very aromatic.

Other Information

Tasmanian Pepper is obviously named after it’s native state of Tasmania; this state was named after 17th century Dutch seaman Abel Tasman, who was the first European to ‘find’ Tasmania in 1642. The leaves contain polygodial, a compound which provides for the hot spicy element, along with other compounds which make the other aromatic flavourings.
