Organic Black Peppercorns (ounce)
Black pepper, Piper nigrum, is a flowering vine in the family Piperaceae, and is cultivated for its fruit. When the fruit is left on the vine to fully mature, it is approximately 2/10” in diameter, dark red in color and contains a single seed. When dried, the fruit is known as a peppercorn. Both the whole peppercorn and the ground peppercorn are frequently referred to as simply ‘pepper’.
While black pepper is certainly not the most expensive spice, it is the most widely used spice (in terms of total volume) in the world. This aromatic spice has a pungent fragrance.
