Green peppercorns are the unripe fruits of the same tropical vine that table ground pepper comes from. In contrast to black peppercorns, green peppercorns have a milder, fresher flavor with less “bite” to the tongue.

Whole green peppercorns are commonly used in French cuisine, especially in sauces and in pickling brines.

Green peppercorns appear smooth and shiny, in contrast to black peppercorns that are wrinkly and rough. This is because green peppercorns are harvested long before maturity and are not permitted to ferment during the drying process. While green peppercorns are sometimes pickled in brine to prevent fermentation, they are also freeze-dried or air-dried and sold as a spice to be used whole or cracked.

Whole dried green peppercorns are the type used to make peppercorn sauces served with roasted chicken, seafood or Steak au Poivre. Green peppercorns are also used in Thai, Cajun and Creole cuisines.
