White Pepper 

Piper Nigrum

Gathering Place organic White Pepper is grown in the multi tiered food forests of our Farmers Cooperative. It is most commonly seen vining up coconut trees thriving in the partial shade. Harvested in the current year, our white pepper has a mild flavour.

Peppercorns are the fruit of an evergreen climbing vine. Black, white, and green peppercorns all come form the same plant, but they are harvested at different times and handled in different ways. White pepper comes from fully ripened peppercorns that have the skin removed, leaving just the seed. This results in a milder flavour than the black peppercorn. For much of the last two thousands years, pepper was a luxury for the very rich, a commodity so valuable that it was even used as money. 

White pepper has the same beneficial effects as black pepper and helps to improve digestion. White pepper is used to add extra flavour to cream sauces, soups, stir-fry, chicken, seafood and potato dishes and marinades.
