An aromatic African pepper, with hints of musk, it’s slightly bitter with average heat. The fruits are blackish berries which are long, narrow and knobbly. We recommend that you grind it in a blender and remove the largest pieces of fibre before serving as a table pepper. It can be used in exactly the same way as black pepper but has its own unique flavour. It's particularly good for seasoning pickles and vinegars. In Senegal it is ground with coffee, a mixture known as 'touba coffee'.
