Black Pepper Difference

What is the difference between different Black Peppers ?

There are different varieties of black pepper available in the world. We are providing information for selecting the best pepper. Differences between peppers can be determined by a very simple method. One has to put the berries in the water and see how many barriers float at the surface. A count of floating berries will give the estimate of light berries. Quality and price of the black pepper can be determined by percentage count of light berries and berry size. Berries grown in Tellicherry region of India have the lowest % light berry count and unique taste. Tellicherry peppers (TGSEB) are the large ripe berries that have been left on the vine for longer period of time. These large berries have less heat than unripe small berries.
