Pepper Berries, Tasmanian

Expand Product Info ▼

Tasmania's native ‘pepper’ is also sometimes referred to as Mountain Pepper. These black berries are a succulent, hot berry with a crunchy seed cluster at their center. When eaten alone, the berries have a sweet taste at the beginning, followed by short-lasting intense heat. We think they are an interesting alternative to conventional black pepper although you should use a light hand—they are 10 times as hot!!

Tasmania's native 'pepper' is an attractive shrub that grows up to five meters high with dark green leaves and distinctive crimson young stems. It’s found in cool wet habitats from sea level to alpine regions in Tasmania.

Use these berries to add a wild, natural and spicy taste to native foods such as emu burgers, flavored breads, pastas and pates, mustards and cheeses. They also can be used as a novel garnish or a spicy ingredient in soups and stews. Additionally, they contain a strong red dye which adds vibrant color to pale sauces and cheeses.

"I was at your North Carolina store in April, it was great. I had purchased the black onyx cocoa powder at that time and it makes the best pudding I have ever made or tasted!"
