What is "pepper"?


Pepper refers to the dried berries of the Piper nigrum vine. It is one of the most widely used spices in the world, prized for its bold and pungent flavor. Pepper comes in various forms, including black, white, green, and red peppercorns, each with its own unique flavor profile and culinary uses. Black pepper, the most common variety, has a sharp and spicy flavor with earthy undertones. It is often used to season savory dishes such as meats, soups, sauces, and vegetables. White pepper has a milder flavor compared to black pepper, with a slightly floral and less pungent taste. Green pepper is harvested before it fully ripens and has a fresh, slightly fruity flavor with a mild heat. Red pepper, also known as pink pepper, is not actually from the Piper nigrum vine but is derived from the Schinus molle trees. It has a fruity and slightly sweet flavor with a mild heat.
