Pondicherry white pepper

Pondicherry pepper is grown in the southernmost state in India - Tamil Nadu (formerly called Madras). It is one of the oldest and highest quality varieties of black pepper in the world. White pepper is obtained from orange/pale-red fruits in initial ripening phase. After harvesting, pepper is soaked for 10 days in slow-running water in order to remove the pulp and leave only the beige core of the fruit. Then pepper is dried in the sun and in the process it acquires an almost white color.

White pepper is less fragrant than black, but has a much sharper and more pronounced taste. Use freshly ground for chicken, fish, rice, sauces and soups.
