Green Peppercorn is the fruit of the evergreen creeping plant /Piper nigrum/ of the Piper family. The plant originates from India, where it is still found growing wild in tropical jungles. Its long stems creep and wrap around the tall trees. In its natural environment, it can reach up to 15 meters in height. Cultivated in tropical regions. Black and white pepper are obtained from the same plant. The color of the spice is determined by the degree of ripeness of the fruits and their subsequent processing.
Green Peppercorn is harvested while the fruits are completely green. It has a strong aroma and, compared to black pepper, a milder taste. Used both dried and preserved in brine. It is suitable for salad dressings and sauces. It is often combined with other types of pepper and is available as allspice.
The spice is considered an aphrodisiac and is traditionally used in Indian medicine to awaken desire. Among gourmets, it is accepted that Green Peppercorn and strawberries represent a unique culinary pleasure that awakens the senses.
Like black pepper, green also contains the substance - piperine. Piperine helps in the secretion of gastric juices, thereby increasing the rate of digestion. Consuming green peppercorn helps reduce gas in the stomach and intestines.
Green peppercorn is rich in vitamins A and C, which are powerful antioxidants that help reduce the concentration of free radicals and the risks associated with damage from them.
