My Latina neighbor is growing this plant and gave me permission to photograph.
She speaks no English and only told me that it is for food.
The closest I can find in our database is Piper auritum. Please, is that correct? Or do I need to take more photos? Thank You!

It sure looks like a match to me. Perhaps you could ask her to write down its Spanish name to confirm the id?

Hoya Santa, used as a spice. My spelling may be wrong...
