The worlds most popular spice. True pepper is actually a berry (not be confused with paprika, cayenne pepper, chilli pepper, red pepper and bell pepper).
Whole black peppers are the dried berry fruit containing a single seed. The dried fruit flesh gives the wrinkled apearance typical of black peppercorns. Pepper gets its heat from the piperine compound found in the fruit skins and the seed itself. The skin also contains important flavour compounds which give black pepper its distictive citrus and woody notes. White pepper has the fruit and skin removed which determines the difference in flavour between black and white pepper.
