The black pepper “tree” is native to a small portion of India in the southwest portion of the country called Kerala, but can be grown in many climates and is very tolerant of unexpected temperature change. There is some hesitation in referring to it as a “tree” due to its vine-like qualities. Its aroma is distinct and familiar.  It can produce black, green, or white peppercorns, depending on when it is harvested, processed, and dried for use. Pink peppercorns, originating in Peru, have in fact no relation to Piper nigrum and only bear a spherical and culinary resemblance. Some table pepper includes pink peppercorn, while other variations are solely various stages of black pepper.

The peppercorns are typically available to consumers in various granule sizes, which have different culinary use cases.
