Also called Brazil pepper, pink peppercorns are not related botanically to black, green or white pepper, but only resemble the latter in shape and size. Schinus terebinthifolius is a medium sized shrub that can reach heights of ten meters and produces small pink berries. The peppercorns are found within this fruit and have a mild, almost sweet taste and aroma. In their native South America, the berries are often added to vinegar, syrup and wine.
