Most prices of Black Pepper are approximations at a point of time and are subject to constant change. The price of Pepper on the MCX futures has traded with a slight positive bias during the last one year. Now, where does pepper find actual application? Pepper finds application in culinary usage as well as in certain pharmaceutical applications. Usage of pepper in India is only now catching up in a bigger way. Unlike many other agricultural crops, Pepper is a perennial crop and hence global cropping patterns happen through the year. As a result there is no seasonal bunching of demand or supply of pepper which helps the price remain steadier over a period of time.
