I got this a few years ago.Sold to me as a piper nigrum (peppercorn). looks similar and vines the same way, but the white berry cone doesn't get any bigger

another shot

RE: Not what I bought

Looks like Piper sarmentosum.
It is widely used in South East Asian cooking. Spicy hot but not terribly so. Yummmm. :-)

Whoohoo where did you get that plant?

RE: Not what I bought

thanks, That was my guess. I got it from a local greenhouse, I don't think she knows what it is. It does root easy from cutting if you would like one

RE: Not what I bought

Really? Awesome! Thank you so very much for the offer. Would you please give me a few cuttings? I will spring for postage. I will email you my address.
Thanks again.
