    Black pepper (from lat. Píper nigrum) is a perennial plant that gives us white, green and black grains. The color and properties depend on the degree of maturation and drying.

    Black pepper – the strongest and hottest
    White pepper has a completely different flavor, not as fresh as black pepper. It’s less spicy, but still quite hot.
    Green pepper is not spicy at all and is suitable for dietary dishes.

    Pink pepper is the fruit of Schinus terebinthifolius or Schinus molle. Very aromatic and almost not spicy at all.
