Background and history

Chinese Pepper or "Sichuan Pepper" refers to a spice obtained from a group of closely related plants of the genus zanthoxylum. It is not related to black pepper but it is widely used in the cuisine of Sichuan China from which it takes its name.

This type of pepper has a very unique and distinct flavor with a slight lemony taste and a tingy numbness. It has small, roundish, single-toothed leaves that give off a fragrant aroma when they are rubbed firmly.

The age of this tree is 19 years old, 14"x13"x19"
