Description & Use
All true pepper whether black, white, green or pink comes from the berries of a tropical evergreen vine.
All true pepper whether black, white, green or pink comes from the berries of a tropical evergreen vine. Black peppercorns are the green unripe peppercorns picked from the vine and dried in the sun. Natural enzymes in the outer husk (pericarp) of the peppercorns, turn the green berries black on drying, forming the volatile oil which gives black pepper its characteristic flavour. The descriptor ‘ASTA’ stands for a grade that meets the quality standards of the American Spice Trader’s Association and is recognised internationally.
