What is Piper longum? Piper longum is the Botanical name for Indian long pepper or just long pepper. Piper longum is a flowering vine in the family Piperaceae, cultivated for its fruit, which is usually dried and used as a spice and seasoning. Piper longum was freely used alongside common black pepper in kitchens from ancient Rome to Renaissance Europe. But the arrival of chiles from the New World and the rising popularity of black pepper shoved Piper longum out of the culinary spotlight. Piper longum possesses black pepper’s heat and musk, but in a less harsh, more nuanced way, tempered by sweet notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, and cardamom.
