Remarkable trees : Schinus Molle - False Pepper Tree

  • Natural wonder
Avenue Edouard VII 06500 Menton
Schinus molle is an evergreen tree native to South America and more particularly to Peru. It belongs to the Anacardiaceae family and its size can quickly reach 15 meters high.
Its drooping habit is reminiscent of the weeping willow. Appreciating sunny exposures, it has adapted particularly well to the Mediterranean climate.
Its fine foliage provides light shade and its spring flowering, consisting of clusters of creamy white flowers, is accompanied by pinkish berries when ripe. They have the smell of pepper and have the reputation of being poisonous. However, they are often found mixed with black, white, green or Jamaican pepper in various assortments.
