Whole Green Peppercorns

We offer heat-dried green peppercorns from Ecuador by full container 20' or larger.

Green peppercorns are the young, unripe fruits of the Piper nigrum vine plant, the same plant where white and black pepper are sourced. The fruits grow in beautiful clusters resembling grapes.  Green peppercorns are harvested when green in color before they reach maturity.
