Tasmania insipida or Pepperbush is a shrub native to Australia with large glossy leaves and red stems and dark berries. The berries have a peppery flavour and can be eaten raw or dried and used like regular pepper. The shrub occurs naturally along with the cool west forests and coasts of Eastern Australia. It grows up to 3m high.


The berries are edible but they have a very strong peppery flavour. When the plants are young they should be watered frequently for proper and faster development. They are easy to identify due to the presence of bright red stem
