Pink peppercorns have a sweet fruity fragrance combined with a delicate, sweet, and peppery, but not hot flavor. Their flavor is reminiscent of a mild citrus zest and sweet berry mixture. Pink peppercorns go especially well in fruit sauces, vinaigrette, desserts, and used with other fruit flavors. These peppercorns have a rich rose color that adds an elegant appearance to any cuisine.
Black usually has a more pungent and hot kick, as they are left on the vine longer to mature

Black and pink peppercorns are not the same plant at all. And in fact, black pepper is made from an unripe drupe. NeuB's right about the flavors though, and that's probably the most important thing.
