Peppercorns Pink “Schinus”




These pink pepperberries have a pine-like flavour and are from the Schinus terebinthifolius tree.

Other Common Names

Pink Pepper, Rose Pepper, Baie Rose, Christmas Berry, Brazilian Mastic Tree. Botanical Name: (Schinus terebinthifolius)

Description & Use

These dried pink peppercorns are not harvested from the pepper vine, but come from a “Shinus” species of tree. These Shinus terebinthifolius peppercorns have a pine-like flavour which resembles Juniper, and is different from true Pink Pepper (Piper nigrum) that is only ever sold in enzyme inhibiting brine.

The berries on so-called pepper trees (Schinus molle, AKA S.areira) with frond-like leaves, that have been grown in Australia in parks and gardens for many years, have a mild toxicity that can cause allergic reactions and should only be consumed with caution. The S.terebinthfolius variety for culinary use has larger leaves, and is also found in parts of northern Australia.

*NB: Discolouration of some peppercorns is an unavoidable result of steam sterilisation required by Australian Quarantine on importation.

Produce of Brazil packed in Australia.

Allergy Statement: Pink Peppercorns belong to the same botanical family as cashew trees.
