Pepper is cultivated since millennia. The wild form has not yet been unambigously identified, but there are closely related pepper species in South India and Burma. While black and white pepper were already known in antiquity, but green pepper (and even more, red pepper) is a recent invention. Black pepper, grown in Southern India since more than two thousand years, has always been much valued all over the world. Pungent and aromatic. The pungency is strongest in white pepper and weakest in green pepper, while black and green pepper are more aromatic than the white one.

You dry the red and green paper to make black paper. That is the way we are doing in malabar. This is not a new invention. The green one is the baby one and when it mature it become orange and turn to red. Then you dry it to make to black.

Black pepper. On the vines they are green first and if let to ripen they get orange to red.
When harvested in the green state they are dried in the sun for about 10 days when they become black pepper.
The ripe red ones are soaked in water for a few hours and then tightly packed in jute bags for 5 days and later the outer skin is peeled off. Then these white seeds are dried for a week.
The white pepper devoid of their skin are of course very hot. Whereas the black pepper dried with its green skin is milder and cheaper.Thats why the white pepper is 3 times costlier and more pungent.
This is just a friendly information. Sincerely,
