    But before the lanky palm conquered the L.A. skyline, another tree played the same metonymic role: the pepper.
    An import from South America’s Andes mountain range, the Peruvian pepper tree (Schinus molle) is instantly recognizable for its fragrant, lacy leaves, drooping branches, and knotted trunk.

    Flora Toskana (Nersingen, Bayern):
    Beim Peruanischen Pfefferbaum (Schinus molle) weiß man nicht, was attraktiver ist: seine würzig riechenden, immergrünen, gefiederten, hellgrünen Blätter, die grazil von den locker verzweigten Kronen herabhängen und im Sommer sanften Schatten spenden. Oder die gelblich-weißen, bis zu 20 cm langen Blütentrauben, die ab April erscheinen. Oder sind es vielleicht doch die roten Früchte, die in ebenso langen Trauben im Herbst ausreifen und mit ihrem Aroma getrocknet als Pfefferersatz verwendet werden?

    *Some authorities would “correct” the species epithet to “mollis” since it is normally an adjective, but Linnaeus borrowed an older genus name (used by Carolus Clusius in a 1574 Latin translation of a work in Spanish by Nicolás Monardes) & as a noun in apposition it does not decline.
