Cubeb is mostly grown in Java and Sumatra, hence sometimes called Java pepper. Dried cubeb berries are similar in appearance to black pepper, but with stalks attached - the "tails" and hence its common name "tailed pepper". Because of its aromatic qualities, cubeb goes well with meat, cheese and vegetable dishes.
