Pepper cultivation

Pepper vines are mostly grown in hilly terrain with well-drained soil under high temperatures and ample rainfall. They need additional support such as other trees or trellis for promoting climbing to prevent the fruits from touching the ground. The leading producers of pepper in India are the southern states – Karnataka, Kerala, and Tamil Nadu. The total area under pepper cultivation in the country was estimated to be over 139 thousand hectares as of the financial year 2019.
