A pink peppercorn is a dried berry of the shrub Schinus molle, commonly known as the Peruvian peppertree.
Although a peppercorn is the dried fruit of a plant from the genus Piper, pink peppercorns came to be called such because they resemble peppercorns, and because they, too, have a peppery flavour. As they are members of the cashew family, they may cause allergic reactions including anaphylaxis for persons with a tree nut allergy.
Dried berries from the related species Schinus terebinthifolius (the Brazilian pepper), are sometimes also called pink peppercorns (baies roses de Bourbon). The dried berries of that shrub are employed as culinary spice. The Brazilian pepper was brought to Florida in 1598 as an ornamental plant and eventually became invasive in the area where it is often referred to as "Florida Holly".
