Black Peppercorns are round and consistently sized, measuring roughly five millimeters in diameter. The spice has a rough texture with a cracked and withered surface surrounding a tan inner seed. Black Peppercorns are firm and extremely hard to the touch, requiring a good deal of force to break. Black Peppercorns originate from the small-dried berries (peppercorns) of the vine Piper nigrum. Peppercorns are actually a tiny fruit, the drupe (a fruit with a single seed in the middle) of a flowering vine known as piper nigrum, grown in tropical regions, native to the Indian subcontinent and in Southeast Asia. Some of the best peppercorns in the world come from the Malabar Coast in the Indian state of Kerala. The name pepper is derived from the Sanskrit name of long pepper, pippali. That word gave rise to the Greek peperi and Latin piper. People ask; Is whole black pepper the same as peppercorns? In reality, black peppercorns are green peppercorns that have been cooked and dried out. Black pepper is most commonly used as a seasoning or crust that adds a robust spice to some of our favorite foods: meats, eggs, salads, fries, soups and more. Black peppercorns are typically ground up and used alongside table salt.
