1.2- Species Piper longum - Long Pepper + Overview Long pepper (Piper longum), sometimes called Indian long pepper, is a floweringvine in the family Piperaceae, cultivated for its fruit, which is usually dried and used as a spice and seasoning. Long pepper has a similar, but hotter, taste to its close relative Piper nigrum - from which black, green and white pepper are obtained. The word pepper itself is derived from the Tamil/Malayalam word for long pepper, pippali. The fruit of the pepper consists of many minuscule fruits - each about the size of a poppy seed - embedded in the surface of a flower spike that closely resembles a hazel treecatkin. Like Piper nigrum, the fruits contain the alkaloidpiperine, which contributes to their pungency. Another species of long pepper, Piper retrofractum, is native to Java, Indonesia. The fruits of this plant are often confused with chili peppers, which belong to the genus Capsicum , originally from the Americas. Long pepper (Piper longum) is native to India, where it has been used in cookery since at least 2000 BC. + The names - Botanical Name : Piper Longum - Common Names : Long Papper, Indian long pepper, Pipli - Other Names: Bi Ba, Bi Bo, Jaborandi Pepper, Kana, Langer Pfeffer, Lindipipper, Magadhi, Magdhi, Pimienta Larga, Pimenta-Longa, Piper longum, Pippali, Pippli, Poivre Long, Poivre Long d’Inde, Poivrier Long, Poivrier Long d'Inde, Poivre Long Indi...
