When pickled, these Spanish pepper kernels are fantastic addition to salads.
We found these trees all over the San Jacinto Valley. You can find them pretty much in any park here in the Inland Empire. They are beautiful country road side trees.
The pink/red ones are already ripe. While the ripe ones are grind-able, they are not as spicy as the regular black pepper. The green kernels are the ones which are better when pickled in white wine vinegar.
The pepper kernels cause thermo-genesis (internal heat inside the body), boost your immune system and support your weight loss regime wonderfully....
