Black pepper is the immature berries and is derived from the green unripe berries of the Piper Nigrum Vine, which when left in the sun to dry turns black and crinkly. Use for seasonings and flavoring soups, meat, poultry, fish, vegetables and salads.
In the middle-ages, pepper was used as currency to pay taxes and rent; it became the custom of land tenants to hand over a single peppercorn as a symbolic confirmation of the relationship between the tenant and landlord. The custom still continues today, back in 1973 when Prince Charles took on the Duchy of Cornwall, part of the tributes he received included 1lb of peppercorns.
