White peppercorns are allowed to fully ripen to a red color before being picked. They are then soaked for several days in a brine solution that helps to loosen the dark outer haul of the peppercorns. The outer hauls are then removed to reveal the white inner kernels we know as white peppercorns.

 

These white peppercorns are from India and have a slightly hotter flavor. They help keep light colored dishes light.

The Plant Which Produces White Peppercorns:

 

*We cannot take returns on edible items.

 

 

The same plant that produces white peppercorns also produces both black and green peppercorns, Piper nigrum. The difference depends on when the pepper berries are picked and how they are handled.

These peppercorns are allowed to fully ripen to a red color before being picked. They are then soaked for several days in a brine solution that helps to loosen the dark outer haul of the peppercorns. These outer hauls are then polished away to reveal the white inner kernels we know as white peppercorns.

 

From India, these peppercorns have a slightly hotter flavor and keep dark specks out of light colored dishes and sauces. They are the preferred pepper in much of the world. White pepper actually comes from the same species of plant as black peppercorns, but has been allowed to fully ripen and has had the black outer husks removed. See Piper nigrum above.

These peppercorns go especially well in sauces, on light colored meats such as fish, and even in mashed potatoes.

 

Fresh white peppercorns on the vinePiper nigrum: The peppercorn plant belongs to the piperaceae plant family. It is a woody evergreen vine that grows up to 11 yards tall and has dark-green, broad, somewhat oval shaped leaves. They use aerial roots to help them cling to, and climb trees.

Peppercorn plants have small white flowers that bloom in clusters of up to 150 florets and hang down in a spike. These flowers then ripen into the little berries that we know as peppercorns. It takes several years for a young plant to flower and begin to produce fruit (the peppercorns).

Since peppercorn plants prefer a hot, humid, tropical environment, they are mostly produced in India, although they are produced in Indonesia, Brazil, and other tropical places. Black pepper often takes on the name of the region where it is produced, or the port from which it is exported. Malabar, Tellicherry, Singapore, Bangkok, Sarawak, and Belém are common examples of this.

Three different kinds of peppercorns are produced by Piper nigrum: black, white, and green.

 
These pepper berries will be ready to harvest for white peppercorns once they all fully mature and turn red. Maturing peppercorns on the plant
