The fruits of this Brazilian spice plant are used as a spice under the names 'pink pepper', 'pink pepper' or 'pink berries'. However, they are not real pepper but berries.
The pink berries are mildly aromatic, with a slightly peppery taste. They are suitable as a beautiful decoration and give desserts that "certain something". Also suitable for meat dishes, salads, soups, for flavouring vinegar and olive oil.
