    its a peruvian pink pepper tree….If you collect a bunch of pepper corns put them in water and vigorously mix the water is makes a detergent type solution and makes your hand nice and smooth. I have a huge one in my back yard and apparently they suck a huge amount of water out the ground. Its quite often added to ‘black peppercorn mix’ to bulk it up. Its not as harsh flavor as black pepper corns and some say they are a bit sweeter. I’ve collected the dried peppercorns ( when they go from pink to a browny colour) and used them in cooking, tasted like pepper funnily enough
