Pink Pepper

Schinus molle

The pink peppercorn, while similar in name and appearance to black peppercorn, is closely related to cashews. Its mildly fruity and peppery flavour also has a more subtle flavour than that of Black Pepper oil. The “molle,” or pink peppercorn tree, was considered a sacred tree to ancient Incans who used all parts of the tree.

Why Peru?

Pink Pepper trees are native to Northern Peru. High in the Andes Mountains Pink Pepper trees grow wild.

Why Kenya?

The Pink Pepper tree can adapt to a variety of soils. It has been planted in many areas of the world but flourishes in warm, sunny climates. In Kenya, Pink Pepper trees have been thriving for decades.

How Does It Work?

   Kenya & Peru

The essential oil is distilled from the berries (also known as peppercorns). Harvesting these berries is not easy, as Pink Pepper trees grow to approximately 15 m tall. Harvesters usually climb the tree to pick the peppercorns or knock them with a stick to later collect from the ground. The berries are cleaned by removing the twigs and leaves, then put into a crusher before distillation. The whole process takes place within 24 hours to preserve as much of the essential oil as possible.
