1729 Map showing the Grain Coast
Pepper Coast is the name of a coastal area in western Africa, between Cape Mesuradomarker and Cape Palmasmarker. It encloses the present republic of Liberiamarker. It got its name from the melegueta pepper. The pepper is also known as the grain of paradise, which gave rise to an alternative name, the Grain Coast. But in some cases (as shown on the map at left) this term covers a wider area incoporating Sierra Leonemarker and the Cote d'Ivoiremarker.
