These tiny unripened seedpods are deceptive. A product of the Japanese prickly ash (Zanthoxylum piperitum) these little green pods are packed with citrus flavor and a tongue numbing tingle. Related to the Sichuan peppercorn, Sansho Japanese pepper has a citrusy flavor and a similar numbing effect. These little green seedpods grow on the Japanese prickly ash, and are a classic flavoring for yakitori. It's especially good with freshwater eel.
