Betel plant is indigenous throughout the Indian Malay region and also cultivated in Madagascar, Bourbon and the West Indies. It is a climbing shrub and is trained on poles or trellis in a hot but shady situation.

Thai elderliers ate Betel Pepper leaves by wrapped with both fresh and/or sun-dries Areca cathecu, Betel chewer and Camphor (Menthol). Just 'chew" it and disgorge when tasteless! :))
