Hi! We love black pepper.  But we can't grow it in Zone 7b because it gets too cold.

I'd like to know of a substitute for it that will grow here.  We already grow every hot chili-pepper there is, like jalapeno, cayenne, tabasco, as well as the bell peppers and pepperoncini.

I'd like to grow something I can dry and grind up that tastes close to black pepper.  No growing in pots, these will be dedicated beds outside.

Thanks so much!
