Organic Green Pepper (Piper Nigrum L) are a shrub of the Piperaceae family. Green pepper corns are picked while the berries still unripe and green in color. It is harvested from January to mid March and then again from November to December. Green peppercorns have a milder but more complex & fresh flavour than most other peppercorns. Dried green pepper is ideal in delicate foods that work best with just a subtle hint of peppery spice.
