Whole grain or ground?
It all depends on when we are going to use the pepper. For conservation issues, ground pepper is recommended in cases where you plan to use it immediately, or in a very short period of time. If this is not the case, the pepper will lose a lot of aroma and flavour after a while, even if it is perfectly stored.
So, in cases where you buy pepper for long-term use, peppercorns are best. That way, you’ll be able to use only what you need and grind it when you need it.

How to Use
White peppercorn is less aromatic than black pepper , but very pungent and should be used in moderation. It goes well vegetables, rice and noodles, as well as all light sauces and soups.
White peppercorn is obtained from ripe orange-colored to reddish pepper fruits. The outer skin and flesh of the pepper berries are removed by soaking the freshly harvested pepper berries in burlap bags in slow running water for about 8 to 10 days. The pulp dissolves as a result and the skin can then be easily removed mechanically. The beige bell pepper cores that remain are then dried in the sun and bleached further.
Store in a cool, dry place, and keep out of direct sunlight.
