eBay 60 Californian Pepper Tree SeedsPeruvian pepper(Schinus molle, also known as American pepper, Peruvian peppertree, escobilla, false pepper, molle del Peru, pepper tree peppercorn tree, Californian pepper tree, pirul and Peruvian mastic is an evergreen tree that grows to 15 meters (50 feet). It is native to the Peruvian Andes. The bright pink fruits of Schinus molle are often sold as "pink peppercorns" although S. molle is unrelated to true pepper (Piper nigrum).DescriptionSchinus molle is a quick growing evergreen tree that grows to 15 meters (50 feet) tall and 5–10 meters (16–33 feet) wide. It is the largest of all Schinus species and potentially the longest lived. The upper branches of the tree tend to droop. The tree's pinnately compound leaves measure 8–25 cm long × 4–9 cm wide and are made up of 19-41 alternate leaflets. Male and female flowers occur on separate plants (dioecious). Flowers are small, white and borne profusely in panicles at the ends of the drooping branches. The fruit are 5–7 mm diameter round drupes with woody seeds that turn from green to red, pink or purplish, carried in dense clusters of hundreds of berries that can be present year-round. The rough grayish bark is twisted and drips sap The bark, leaves and berries are aromatic when crushed.DistributionS. molle is native to the arid zone of Northern South America and Peru's Andean deserts, and goes to Central Argentina and Central Chile. It has, however, become widely naturalized around the world where it has been planted as an ornamental and for spice production. S. molle is a drought tolerant, long-lived, hardy evergreen species that has become a serious invasive weed internationally.In South Africa, for example, S. molle has invaded savanna and grasslands and become naturalised along drainage lines and roadsides in semi-desert. It is also invasive throughout much of Australia in a range of habitats from grasslands to dry open forest and coastal areas, as well as railway sidings and abandoned farms.In the United States, either S. molle or its close relative Schinus terebinthifolius is particularly invasive in Florida and Hawaii, and can also be found in southern Arizona, southern California, Texas, Louisiana and Puerto Rico.Distinctive barkAlthough not related to commercial pepper (Piper nigrum) the pink/red berries are sold as pink peppercorns and often blended with commercial pepper. The fruit and leaves are, however, potentially poisonous to poultry, pigs and possibly calves. Records also exist of young children who have experienced vomiting and diarrhea after eating the fruit.Extracts of S. molle have been used as a flavor in drinks and syrups.MedicinalIn traditional medicine, S. molle was used in treating a variety of wounds and infections due to its antibacterial and antiseptic properties. It has also been used as an antidepressant and diuretic, and for toothache, rheumatism and menstrual disorders, with recent studies in mice providing possible support for its antidepressant effects. It has also been speculated that S. molle's insecticidal properties make it a good candidate for use as an alternative to synthetic chemicals in pest control.Other usesThe leaves are also used for the natural dying of textiles in the Andean region. This practice dates back to pre-Columbian times.California pepper tree seeds should be soaked in a glass of lukewarm water for 12 hours before being planted. This will give the seeds a chance to absorb water that will be used to speed up germination and give the seedlings a strong start.GerminationFill the seedling starter tray with well-draining potting soil. California pepper trees can tolerate many kinds of soil, but will do best in regular, well-draining potting soil. Do not plant the seeds in soil with poor drainage as this can lead to rot. California pepper tree seeds will germinate faster in moist soil. Water the soil in the tray until it is thoroughly moist and allow it to settle and all of the water to drain. Scatter the seeds evenly over the surface of the soil. Gently cover the seeds with around ¼ to ½ inch of soil. Water the soil well and allow it to drain.Place the seed tray in a warm greenhouse or near a window that receives direct sunlight. Watch the soil for signs of germination, small green sprouts emerging from the soil. Water the soil whenever it feels dry.__________________________________________Visit and follow my instagram @kauai_garden to view photos and videos of what I have in stock and upcoming plants. @kauai_garden___________________________________________________________________I do combined shipping.If the shop doesn't do it automatically, add them all to your cart and "request an invoice" and I will adjust the excess shipping charges.Or just buy them and I will refund the excess shipping charges._____________________
