Whether it is safflower peppercorns or green peppercorns, the quality is good, and the appearance is dry and oily. Safflower peppercorns should be selected for red color, no stem, fine skin, uniform particles, and few seeds in the mouth; Green peppercorns should be selected for green color, thick skin, strong aroma and no impurities.

It mainly depends on the color of the peppercorns, the size of the pepper grains, the number of openings, and whether there are impurities. The inside of the safflower pepper is white, and the dyed safflower pepper is not white inside.

Dried peppercorns make a rustling sound when pinched. In addition, when the peppercorns are pinched and put back, and then the palms of the hands are observed, it can be checked that the peppercorns contain more mud and ash impurities.
