Black Peppercorns are round and consistently sized, measuring roughly five millimeters in diameter. The spice has a rough texture with a cracked and withered surface surrounding a tan inner seed. Black Peppercorns are firm and extremely hard to the touch, requiring a good deal of force to break.

BLACK PEPPER WHOLE 100g is produced from the still-green unripe berries of the pepper plant.The heat ruptures cell walls in the fruit, speeding the work of browning enzymes during drying.


The round spice has a mild musty aroma similar to wet hay with notes of citrus and fruit. Peppercorns are rarely consumed whole and must be cracked or ground before they are used. Once broken, they release a pungent aroma that can tickle the nose. The spice has a biting and lingering heat with notes of citrus, fruit, and grass.


Culinary Notes:

Whole Black Pepper is an absolute staple spice in almost every pantry across the world.. It has a woody flavour with a spicy heat.

Health benefits:

Pepper has Piperine compounds that improve digestion and calms nausea.



Black Peppercorns are available year-round.

Nutritional Value

Black Peppercorns are rich in vitamins A and C and have a significant amount of caffeine, a stimulant that can help keep the brain alert. Research has shown the spice to be rich in antioxidants, anti-microbial, and anti-inflammatory properties, all attributed to the essential oil responsible for the fruit’s taste, piperine.


It is also an essential ingredient in almost every recipe, added to the taste of the cook along with salt.

Use black pepper in spice blends for fish, poultry, meat, and vegetables.


The outer layer of a dried black peppercorn (known as the “pericarp”) is dark brown/black and wrinkled in appearance.  The inside part contains a large seed which is lighter in color. This is why cracked and ground pepper seems lighter in color than whole peppercorns. White pepper is made from ripe peppercorns that are soaked to remove the outer layer and is therefore lighter in color.

Black pepper is available whole, cracked, and ground but gourmet cooks prefer freshly ground peppercorns. A coarse grind is desirable for dishes such as pepper-crusted steak.   The flavor of black pepper mellows with cooking. That is one reason why the pepper shaker on the table is so important.
