*Long pepper (Piper longum), sometimes called Indian long pepper or pippali, is a flowering vine in the family Piperaceae, cultivated for its fruit, which is usually dried and used as a spice and seasoning. Long pepper has a taste similar to, but hotter than, that of its close relative Piper nigrum – from which black, green and white pepper are obtained.
*Long Pepper has a unique flavor not found in regular pepper, it can be hard to define.
* This is a whole (not powdered) product. You will need a grinder or mortar and pestle; though it is not as hard as regular pepper.
