Grown on the banks of the Jialing River this green Sichuan pepper with a lot of swagger. Crazy aromatic it packs a herbal punch unlike any green Sichuan pepper we have tried before. We can understand that it comes from Hongya that is know for its culinary traditions, particularly its loaded and flavorful hot pot. 

When we visited Hongya on our trip to Sichuan we ate some of the best food we have ever had. We will never forget those feats and are happy to be able to share this beautiful product with you all.

We would use it when you want your green Sichuan pepper to have the center stage in broths, acidic hot pots and stir fried vegetables.

Green Sichuan pepper, also known as Hua Jiao in Chinese, is a type of spice commonly used in Chinese cuisine, particularly in the Sichuan province. It is derived from the fruit of the prickly ash tree, just like the Hongya Sichuan pepper, but it is harvested earlier in the growing season when the fruit is still green and immature.

Green Sichuan pepper has a milder flavor compared to the red variety, with a slightly lemony and tangy taste. It is often used in dishes that require a more subtle flavor, such as fish and seafood dishes, and it is also used in spice blends such as five-spice powder.

Green Sichuan pepper is an essential ingredient in Sichuan cuisine, prized for its unique flavor and health benefits. It is often used in combination with other spices such as chili peppers and garlic to create the distinctive flavor of Sichuan cuisine.

Located in the Southeastern part of Sichuan, Hongya county is situated on the banks of the Jialing River and is known for its rich cultural heritage and scenic beauty.

Hongya is also known for its culinary traditions, particularly its hot pot. The district is home to many hot pot restaurants, which are popular with locals and visitors alike.
