Green Sichuan pepper has a distinctly different taste than the red species and has become very popular in Sichuan over the past couple decades, as its fresh, lemony taste is a great match for fish, chicken and vegetables. It is also used frequently in hot pot and noodle dishes. 

A member of the citrus family, the Zanthoxylum genus includes numerous edible species of both red and green Sichuan pepper. Premium green Sichuan pepper (formerly Szechuan pepper) should have a strong citrusy, floral fragrance and taste as well as an intense numbing quality. Ours is particularly potent, as it has not undergone the once-required heat-treatment process that for so long robbed Sichuan pepper of some of its punch. We believe we are the first to (legally) bring in untreated peppercorns, since Chinese suppliers uniformly heat-treat for the U.S. market. 

Some of the best green hua jiao is from southern Sichuan along the border with Yunnan Province. This single-origin pepper is grown in the county of Jinyang in the Liangshan Yi Autonomous Prefecture of Sichuan. 

Though green peppercorns tend to retain more seeds than red, these are hand-sorted to include mostly opened seed pods and few stems and seeds, which appear in abundance in lower-quality Sichuan pepper. These peppercorns went direct from farmers to our supplier for processing and safety testing.
