Our Black Peppercorns are sourced from India, Indonesia and Vietnam (depending on the time of year) and are picked when the berry hasn’t fully ripened. White peppercorn berries are allowed to fully ripen before they are picked and the black outer shell is then removed by soaking them in water until the black shell loosens. Green Peppercorns begin with the picking of the immature green fruits from the same vine that produces the popular black peppercorn. These unripened peppercorns are then placed in boiling water, treated with a potassium sulphite, and then they are either dehydrated or frozen. The sulfite is an oxidase inhibitor that prevents the blackening from oxidation that is normally catalyzed by that enzyme. Grown in Brazil these gourmet pink peppercorns are not related to black peppercorns. They are prized for their spectacular reddish color.
