  • used in manufacturing and foodservice applications; bulk dry leaf  available as fine (<1mm) or coarse (<2.4mm) mill.  Fresh leaf is seasonally available.
  • Packaging: polythene bags 1kg, 2kg and cartons 10 and 12.5kg.


  • Sustainably harvested, from March until late May.
  • Fresh berries are black and succulent with a hot, crunchy seed cluster at their centre and a beautiful, rich red juice - delightful in pale sauces, jus and garnishes.
  • Berries are cleaned and dried either using warm air or by freeze-drying. Airdried berries can be used just like a traditional pepper - in a grinder or crushed in a mortar. Freezedried berries are crumbly and give a beautiful purple colour. For 'packaging', can we change the volumes to get rid of the 250 and 500g units.
  • An excellent addition to the spice cupboard – fruity spice, with a sharp heat.
