This rare and interesting pepper has a ripe fruity flavor like berries. Mild and slightly numbing. Patagonia Wild Pepper replaces black pepper very nicely when blended with other spices.
For centuries this exotic pepper has been harvested on the northern islands of Patagonia, Chile by the Mapuche Indians, who appreciate it for its intriguing taste and its medicinal properties. Use like pepper over pork, vegetables or poultry recipes. A botanist might say that Patagonia Wild Pepper is in fact not a true pepper nor true chili, but any gourmand will say that its flavor falls somewhere in between.
