Pink peppercorns have a sweet, fruity fragrance along with a delicate,
sweet, and peppery, but not hot flavor. Their flavor is reminiscent of a
mild citrus zest and sweet berry mixture. The flavor of pink peppercorns
goes especially nicely in fruit sauces, vinaigrette dressings, desserts,
and combined with other fruit flavors. These peppercorns have a rich rose
color that adds an elegant appearance to any cuisine.
These expensive little
"berries" will also add a dash of color to your sauces.

The Pink Peppercorn Plant:
are not true "peppercorns", but similar tasting berries
often called Pink Peppercorns, Peruvian pepper, Baies Rose
Plant, or pepper tree (Schinus molle) that is native
to South America.
Rose plant is a small tree that has numerous compound leaves
with slender, symmetrical, leaflets on each side of the
peppercorns form in clusters on the tips of the branches and
can be from white, at an immature age, to pink or even a
dark red. Like its cousin the mango (Anacardiaceae
family), this plant can also cause allergies.
or the Brazilian pepper tree, is a closely related species whose
are also sold as pink peppercorns in some areas. This pink pepper
plant, like Sch. molle, is also a small tree when fully grown.
The biggest difference between it and Sch. molle is
their compound leaves. The Leaves of Sch. terebinthifolius have
fewer leaflets, are more stubby, rounded, and the veins on the leaves
are also light green. It has an appearance similar to that of holly
and is used as a substitute for it. Schinus terebinthifolius
grows wildly in only a couple of parts of the United States, mostly
low lying areas with plentiful water such as wetlands. The branches of
this sort of tree intertwine to form a thick barrier that blocks light
from reaching surrounding plants. Its berries are almost identical to
that of its close relative Schinus molle.
Species': molle, terebinthifolius, aroeira
