Enjoy our Free Self guided botanical tour in Sarapiqui
Black pepper (Piper nigrum) Black pepper plants are vines which are induced to grow up and around thin trees of other species which are used as a base. Both black and white pepper is made from the berries of these vin.
Cultivated for its fruit, which is usually dried and used as a spice and seasoning. When dried, the fruit is known as a peppercorn. When fresh and fully mature, it is approximately 5 millimetres (0.20 in) in diameter, dark red, and, like all drupes, contains a single seed. Peppercorns, and the ground pepper derived from them, may be described simply as pepper, or more precisely as black pepper (cooked and dried unripe fruit), green pepper (dried unripe fruit) and white pepper (ripe fruit seeds).
