Discover the unique flavor of Zanthoxylum simulans, also known as Chinese-pepper, Flatspine Prickly Ash, or Szechun Pepper. This flowering plant from the Rutaceae family is native to eastern China and Taiwan and is one of the several species of Zanthoxylum that produce Sichuan pepper. It is a spreading shrub or small tree, growing up to 20 ft tall, with pinnate leaves, and a plethora of short spines on stems and petioles. The 3-4 mm fruit, with a rough reddish-brown shell that splits open to release the black seeds from inside, is dried and used as a seasoning. The pepper flavor of Zanthoxylum simulans is stronger and more pungent than black pepper, making it a favorite ingredient for the Chinese 'five spice' mixture. Its resin, extracted from the bark and roots, is powerfully stimulant and tonic. This plant is relatively easy to grow and prefers a good deep, well-drained, moisture-retentive soil under full sun or semi-shade. Experience the unique flavor and aroma of Zanthoxylum simulans today, and add it to your culinary repertoire.
