Z. simulans and Z. alatum were studied. The phenophases of the plants were monitored. Data were presented on the accumulation of essential oil in leaves and fruits. The physicochemical properties and composition of the essential oil were studied, using GLC. The antimicrobial activity of the essential oil was studied with respect to Candida albicans, Staphylococcus aureus, Serratia marcescens, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Bacillus anthracoides. The oil of Z. simulans demonstrated sporocide effect and was active towards E. coli infection. Z. alatum fruits may be used as black pepper substitute in preserving vegetables and meat.
