The pepper plant is a flowering vine that can grow up to 30 feet in tropical climates. The plant’s small white flowers develop into berries, which are picked when they are nearly ripe and left to dry. As they dry, the berries shrivel and become dark in color.
We carry organically-grown Malabar black peppercorns, which are native to India’s Malabar Coast and considered some of the most flavorful in the world – slightly hot with a bit of sweetness. We recommend adding freshly-cracked pepper to your food just before serving to ensure maximum flavor.
