Production of white and black peppercorns
The production of white and black pepper is different. The production of white pepper is more elaborate and also carries the risk of crop failure due to bad weather as well as bird feeding of ripe pepper berries
Black pepper is obtained by picking the still unripe berries and leaving them over the night. This triggers a fermentation of the outer shell of peppercorns and it turns black. Further drying in the sun causes the peppercorn to become wrinkled.
For the production of white pepper, the berries are not harvested until fully ripe when the berries turn red. Then they are soaked and the outer shell replaced. What's left is white pepper.
It originated in the mountainous hinterland of southwestern India, the famous Malabar coast.
