Pink Pepper, or Schinus terebinthifolius, is also known as Rose Baises, Brazilian peppertree, Red Peppercorn, Florida holly, Christmas berry, rose pepper, pimiento rosa
The pink peppercorn comes from a sprawling shrub that can grow quite large if the conditions are optimal. It has vine like branches with small white flowers and small pinkish red berries.
It is native to tropical and sub tropical climates like South America, the Caribbean, Africa and many islands in the Pacific Ocean.
The berries are not true peppercorns, but are most often used as an exotic pepper substitute.
The pink shell is brittle and thin and flakes off quite easily, revealing a brown, grind-able "peppercorn" in the middle.
