Tellicherry (black Whole)
Grown on the east coast of India, near the harbor of Tellicherry. Tellicherry pepper is the best of the black peppers. It is bigger, bolder in color, finer in flavor and aroma. Tellicherry is a newcomer to the pepper market; it has only been available for the past 20 years. It is a close relative to Malabar, and grows in the same region of India.
