- pepper: [OE] The pepper vine is a native of the East Indies, and its name is oriental in origin too. It comes ultimately from Sanskrit pippalí, which meant ‘berry’, and hence ‘peppercorn’. It came west via Greek péperi and Latin piper, and was borrowed in prehistoric times into the West Germanic languages, giving German pfeffer, Dutch peper, and English pepper. Its application to fruits of the capsicum family, or their pungent dried products (no relation to the original pepper), dates from the 16th century. Pimpernel is a derivative of Latin piper.
- pepper (n.)
- Old English pipor, from an early West Germanic borrowing of Latin piper "pepper," from Greek piperi, probably (via Persian) from Middle Indic pippari, from Sanskrit pippali "long pepper."
