Meghalaya has natural advantages that help in the cultivation of a variety of spices and herbs — including this black pepper or peppercorn. The piper longum is native to the Northeast and is more pungent or hotter than the black peppercorn used in most other parts of India. The climatic conditions — humidity, moderately warm temperature, severe cold winters and high rainfall — help it grow in profusion.
