Pepper has been called “the king of spices”, and is used in every cuisine in the world for its unmistakable pungency, heat, and aroma. Pepper is so universally loved that explorers searched the world over for new sources, which is why so many other spices have “pepper” in their name. There isn’t a savory dish in the world that doesn’t include some pepper, and its many varieties allow the cook to experiment to get exactly the level of flavor and heady aroma that they want.

Green pepper, also called green peppercorns, has a “fresher”, milder flavor than black pepper (actually the flavor relationship is very similar to green tea and red tea). Its subtle aroma and tang make it an excellent choice for light vegetables, seafood, aromatic soups and sauces, or sauces based on egg, cream, or cheese. You can certainly use green pepper as a substitute for black in recipes, but I’d suggest starting with a half-and-half blend, personally.
