Peppercorns are the fruit of Piper nigrum plant, an evergreen climbing vine. Black, white, and green peppercorns all come form the same plant, but they are harvested at different times and processed in different ways. Green peppercorns are picked before they are mature and not allowed to dry, thus capturing their green color, and slightly unique flavor. They have a bright aroma, crisp flavor, and uniform green color. Due to the fact that green peppercorns decay rather quickly, they are either pickled in brine or freeze dried to preserve them. The green peppercorns offered by Mountain Rose Herbs have been freeze dried.
