Green peppercorns are young and immature when picked. In the regions where peppercorn vines can grow, fresh green berries are often added to dishes as a garnish or as an ingredient to curry pastes. The aroma is somewhat piney. The flavor isn’t as spicy as black pepper, nor as pungent. Instead, it’s fresh and piquant. Green pepper makes for an excellent addition to poultry, fish, vegetable, and milder game meats.
