  • What are pink berry pearls?

    Pink Berry Pearls are the fruit of the tree called Schinus Terebenthifolius, native to South America, but introduced by Creole settlers and now growing on the east coast of Madagascar. It is also found in Peru, Brazil, South Africa, Reunion Island and New Caledonia.

    This tree can measure up to fifteen metres high, but in order to facilitate the harvesting of its fruits, it is forced to stop growing at three metres. Schinus Terebenthifolius has long been confused with pepper because of its similarities to pepper (especially in terms of its overall appearance and its fruit that grows as bunches). However, it is not part of the Piper nigrum family and, as such, cannot claim to be a "real pepper".

    The fruits from this tree are therefore not peppercorns, but berries grouped in clusters of white flowers at the beginning of their growth, then showing an increasingly bright pink color as they mature and until they are harvested.

    David Vanille's choice: I have chosen to present you pink berry pearls from Madagascar for their fruity and sweet aroma. Ideal to flavour your salty or sweet dishes.

    The harvest of pink berry pearls from Madagascar

    The colour speaks, like a signal: it is time to harvest when the berry is adorned with its reddish colour, it is able to deliver the substantial marrow of its aromatic power. The Pink Berry Pearls are harvested manually. Then, it is a question of letting them dry and finally sorting them by hand, in order to guarantee a homogeneous quality. Did you know that? The price of pink berries can be multiplied by 1 to 5 depending on the quality level. The berries are sorted into 3 categories: Grade 1: 5% defect Grade 2: 15% defect Grade 3: 30% defect

    The origins of pink berries

    Pink berries have been discovered in South America. The species Schinus Terebinthifolius originates from Brazil. It was then introduced in various countries in South America before being brought back to Madagascar in the 19th century.

    Other uses of pink berry pearls

    Pink pepper contains phosphorus, calcium and pinene. It has many benefits:

    • Acts on the respiratory tract
    • Relieves colds and bronchitis
    • Relieves cough
    • Beneficial for people with hypertension
    • Acts on nausea and bloating

    If Pink Pepper (or Pink Berries) is an excellent phytotherapeutic support, it also helps to fight diseases known more locally as Chikungunya.

    In traditional Reunionese medicine, Pink Berries are recommended to allow the female menstrual cycle to run smoothly.

    From the leaves of Schinus Terebenthifolius, an excellent essential oil is extracted to which we would attribute anti-cancer properties, moreover, the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry is creating an ever-increasing demand in this direction.

    How to use bourbon pepper in cooking?

    With a higher sugar content than other spices, and its saturation of aromas, this berry will surprise all palates with its aromatic power and voluptuousness. When tasting, you can feel the sweet and powerful aromas of pepper and star anise, without any spiciness.

    If we tend to recommend Pink Berries in the preparation of salads, sauces, white meats or fish, we sometimes forget the gustatory magic they bring in even more "simple" preparations such as in a tea (or an infusion), or in your butter that you use your sandwiches for breakfast!

    By leaving a few berries to infuse in your favourite vinegar or oil, you will obtain original and tasty flavoured vinaigrettes.

    Do you want to surprise your guests? Make your own Caribbean salt using these Pink Berries, or even by mixing the Pink Berries with Brazilian Black Pepper, or by preparing your mixture of 5 berries (a mixture that you will also find ready to use on my site).

    Advice: For a different taste experience, I advise you to roast your Bourbon Pepper berries.
