- Black Pepper: The unripe, green peppercorns are harvested, boiled for two minutes and then sun-dried for one week. The drying process turns the peppercorns black to make black pepper.
- White Pepper: After making black pepper, the black skin is taken off to make white pepper. Taking the black skin off makes the pepper less spicy.
- Red Pepper: the peppercorns turn red when they are ripe. Red pepper, therefore, is made from harvesting ripe peppercorns. It is also boiled and sun-dried.
