It's much softer, and also delightfully sweet in comparison to most peppercorns, with a hint of spice. Due to their nature, Pink Peppercorns are very hard to cultivate, transport, store and thus extremely expensive as far as spices go. But they are well worth the effort, as this flavour can't be found anywhere else! They're so yummy, they can even be nibbled on whole! Also known as: Brazil Pepper , Poivre rose, Baies roses, Poivrier d’Amérique, Brasilianischer Pfeffer, Rosé-Pfeffer, Pembebiber, baies roses de Bourbon, pink pepper corns.

This peppercorn is in fact not a true peppercorn - it doesn't come from the Piper genus. It gets it's name because it looks extremely similar to most peppercorns, and in fact comes from the Cashew family. Pink Peppers are much more delicate and lighter than other peppercorns. They also taste like it too - there's a hint of spice which is quickly accompanied by sweet and fruity flavours. In 1982, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the United States banned the import of Brazilian peppercorns from France into the US, asserting that people who eat the berries risk an array of acute symptoms. In response, the Government of France maintained that the berries are safe to eat if grown in prescribed conditions, which many of them are! The United States later lifted the ban, and is now one of the larger markets in the world for these exotic berries.
Unlike most spices, Pink peppercorns have only been discovered and grown in last century: exporting began in the late 1800's / 1900's. Their popularity spread quickly due to the exotic taste, and soon became a favourite in France and parts of South America. Now, small quantites of Pink Peppercorns are also cultivated in America, although their traditional age-old location is Peru / Brazil, which is where Regency's premium quality comes from.
