Description Fine Print
 
Zanthoxylum simulans, the Sichuan pepper, is a deciduous, aromatic, spiny shrub or small tree with small, yellowish green flowers and brownish red fruits that are used in Sichuan cuisine. The peppercorns impart a strange spiciness that actually numbs the tongue -- a strange and intriguing sensation kind of like crossing a habanero pepper with a trip to the dentist. It's cool. Really! Plants are partially self-fertile but will produce more fruit when two different plants are present.
