On the last TravelWise tour of Coorg, we interacted extensively with the planter who hosted us. He spent about three hours walking us around the estate and talking about every single plant within their property.
As we walked, he would look carefully into ground or into a tree, pick up some grass or a small leaf and ask us to chew or smell it. He would pick up a strange looking fruit from a tree, cut it into pieces and tell us to eat it. He would go on to talk about vegetation in the forest that effectively curtailed forest fire or about pests that are trapped by luring them into a bowl of alcohol! The session that we planned for an hour lasted three hours, but it never seemed like we were there so long.
Here is a short video of Mr. Prakash Poovanna explaining how Pepper is harvested.
