How many varieties of edible pepper spice there are? I know white, black, green and pink pepper, but I'm sure that around the world there are many more varieties. There is a comprehensive list or a book devoted to pepper and receipts with pepper?
So far, the best reference I found is Wikipedia.
Black pepper (Piper nigrum) has the following varieties:
- Black pepper
- White pepper
- Green pepper
- Orange pepper and red pepper
Cubeb (Piper cubeba), or tailed pepper
Long pepper (Piper longum)
Sichuan pepper (Zanthoxylum)
Pink peppercorn (Schinus molle, Schinus terebinthifolius)
I think you have it pretty well covered with the list you've provided. The only other I'm aware of is the Szechuan Peppercorn, which is an important part of Asian cusine. For example the are a key ingredient in Five - spice powder
You may find reference to things like French Perrercorns but these just tend to be blends of the the others.
There is also white pepper. There's not really a difference in a taste, but it's good for dishes where the flecks of black pepper would ruin the look.
