Black pepper is produced from the green, unripe berries of the pepper plant; the same fruit is used to produce white and green peppercorns. Once dried, the berries become black peppercorns with a pungent, fiery flavor. Due to their size and the maturity of their berries at harvest, the Malabar and Tellicherry pepper varieties have a very fresh, robust flavor and are considered the highest quality black peppercorns.
