Savory, spicy, fruity, funky — pepper is so much more than what you find in your typical table-top shaker. Just like with vinegar or cooking oil, having a few different types of peppercorns on hand can be the key to cooking up different regional cuisines, or just a tasty shortcut to jazzing up your weeknight dinners.

We source five types of pepper — each one is unique and bursting with flavor — for your cooking pleasure. Differences in climate, terroir, cultivation techniques and processing make for the vast array of flavor that comes from this single plant.

Each pepper berry is made up of a single pepper seed enclosed by the pepper fruit and a very thin layer of skin. And get this — those "berries"? They were once tiny flowers that required individual raindrops for pollination.🤯

PURPLE PEPPERCORNS:
The Ripe, Regal & Rare Pepper

Pepper berries are allowed to mature to peak ripeness before picking. This produces a complex, fruity, purple-hued peppercorn with an aroma like strawberries and a kick like a jalapeño. We think of it almost as a “dessert” pepper — excellent to add at the end of cooking or to top raw ingredients like fruit, salads or even cakes.

FERMENTED WHITE PEPPER:
The Umami Enhancer

Our Fermented White Pepper’s super-savory aroma comes from a fermentation process specific to Indonesia. The resulting pepper is savory, earthy and cheesy, perfect for Southeast Asian dishes. Our resident vegans recommend pairing it with nutritional yeast for a delicious non-dairy Parmesan substitute!

WILD TIMUR PEPPER:
The Tingly Adventure Pepper

Closely related to Sichuan peppercorns, Timur pepper is known for the tingling, buzzing sensation that it produces on the tongue. Essential in certain East Asian cuisines, its citrusy, zesty, herbal complexity and unique tactile experience can’t be replicated. It makes a welcome addition to meatballs and tofu stir-fries.
