Wikipedia SummaryBlack pepper (Piper nigrum) is a flowering vine in the family Piperaceae, cultivated for its fruit, known as a peppercorn, which is usually dried and used as a spice and seasoning. When fresh and fully mature, the fruit is about 5 mm (0.20 in) in diameter and dark red, and contains a single seed, like all drupes. Peppercorns and the ground pepper derived from them may be described simply as pepper, or more precisely as black pepper (cooked and dried unripe fruit), green pepper (dried unripe fruit), or white pepper (ripe fruit seeds).Black pepper is native to present-day South India, and is extensively cultivated there and elsewhere in tropical regions. Pliny the Elder's Natural History tells us the prices in Rome around 77 CE: 'Long pepper ... is 15 denarii per pound, while that of white pepper is seven, and of black, four.' Pliny also complains, 'There is no year in which India does not drain the Roman Empire of 50 million sesterces', and further moralizes on pepper: It is quite surprising that the use of pepper has come so much into fashion, seeing that in other substances which we use, it is sometimes their sweetness, and sometimes their appearance that has attracted our notice; whereas, pepper has nothing in it that can plead as a recommendation to either fruit or berry, its only desirable quality being a certain pungency; and yet it is for this that we import it all the way from India!
