The overall picture of black pepper


Due to its attractive characteristics and nutritional value, black pepper is regarded as the king of spices. Black pepper has a variety of purposes, both culinary and medicinal.

Overview of black pepper

The unripe, still-green drupe of the pepper plant is used to make black pepper. To clean them and prepare them for drying, the drupes are briefly boiled in hot water. The pepper’s cell walls are ruptured by the heat, which speeds up the browning enzymes’ action during drying. The pepper skin around the seed shrinks and darkens into a thin, wrinkled black covering as the drupes dry in the sun or by machine over several days. Black pepper is the name for the spice after it has dried.
