Peppercorn is native to South Indian and has been cultivated for millennia. Black and white pepper were already known in antiquity, but green pepper is a recent invention. Pepper has also been cultivated in Sri Lanka for nearly two thousand years.
Black pepper (Piper Nugrum) comes from the berries of the pepper plant. Black, green and white peppercorns are the same fruit. The difference in their color reflects varying stages of development and processing methods.
Black peppercorns are made by picking the pepper berries when they are half ripe and just about to turn red. They are then left to dry which causes them to shrivel and become dark in color. Alternatively, green peppercorns are picked while still unripe and green in color, while white peppercorns are picked when very ripe and subsequently soaked in brine to remove their dark outer shell leaving just the white pepper seed.
Sensory Quality & Flavor Profile
Pungent and aromatic. Black and green peppercorns are more aromatic than the white ones. There is a distinct and undeniable earthiness to the flavor of black pepper, one that is woody, piney and sharp all at the same time. Black pepper also has a unique pungent taste all its own and is both biting and hot to average and refined palettes alike. White pepper tastes hotter than black but is less complex, with fewer flavor notes.
