Description: Tellicherry whole black peppercorns are left on the vine longer so they develop a deep, rich flavor. Considered the finest pepper in the world, these extra-large berries come from the Malabar coast of India.
The berries for black peppercorns are picked from the vine just before they ripen and turn red. As they dry, the berries turn black. Left to ripen longer than most black peppercorns, Tellicherry pepper has a full, robust flavor described as almost fruity. Its mellow complexity makes it a wonderful all-purpose pepper in your kitchen.
