Peru Greets Mallorca


The Schinus Molle, also known as the Peruvian Peppertree (aka Californian Pepper, aka Pepperina), is a tree that is a native to the Peruvian Andes region.

As luck would have it, the tree does very well in the Mediterranean climate as well. You can find some fine specimen in Llucmajor, for instance, where I took this photo only yesterday.

The tree carries a myriad of red, or pink, berries. Not only do these berries look nice, they also can be used as a condiment. They are sold as pink peppercorns. We use them quite a lot in our own cooking.

The photo was taken in the village of Llucmajor, Mallorca, Spain. The date: December 13th, 2007. The time was 14:25:28.
