Japanese Pepper Plant

Zanthoxylum piperitum

Also known as Sansho, the deciduous Japanese Pepper tree is prized as an essential ingredient, both cooked and raw, in many Asian dishes. All parts are used in cooking: the tree’s handsome, dark green, 3-6" long leaves have pungent, peppery oils; its abundant, aromatic, small red fruits, its dried fruit hulls and small black seeds all contribute the valuable flavoring. Trees grow about 6-8 feet tall and are hardy to about minus 10° F.

USDA Zones 7-9.
