Peppercorn redirects here. For other uses, see Peppercorn (disambiguation). Black pepper Piper nigrum - Köhler–s Medizinal-Pflanzen-107.jpg Pepper plant with immature peppercorns Scientific classification e Kingdom: Plantae Clade: Angiosperms Clade: Magnoliids Order: Piperales Family: Piperaceae Genus: Piper Species: P. nigrum Binomial name Piper nigrum L.[1] Black pepper (Piper nigrum) is a flowering vine in the family Piperaceae, 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). Black pepper is native to south India and is extensively cultivated there and elsewhere in tropical regions. Currently, Vietnam is the worlds largest producer and exporter of pepper, producing 34% of the worlds Piper nigrum crop as of 2013. Dried ground pepper has been used since antiquity for both its flavour and as a traditional medicine. Black pepper is the worlds most traded spice. It is one of the most common spices added to cuisines around the world. The spiciness of black pepper is due to the chemical piperine, not to be confused with the capsaicin characteristic of chili peppers. Black pepper is ubiquitous in the modern world as a seasoning and is often paired with salt.
