Just as Green and Black olives have a different taste so do green and black peppercorns.
The white peppercorn is still basically Black so the taste difference isn't so noticeable to some people.

I mix black and white ground peppers in the table shaker, I'll bet cafes, etc, do the same.

So as they are produced in different conditions they are therefore different in taste.

Green, Black and White all grow on the same vine.

Green is picked unripe and Black is picked ripe.
White is the black with the outer husk removed.

I think there is a difference in the two peppers my wife says she can tell the difference.

I prefer white pepper, or my mix, on baked beans and soups and such things. Freshly ground black peppercorns are for steaks and gravy.
Black pepper just doesn't look good on many foods because it looks like grit or contamination.

The easy way to find out is to taste them blindfolded.
If it wasn't for the visual effect I'm not convinced I could tell them apart. It is something to test out.

I totally dispute the idea that black and white pepper taste the same.

My pepper pot is a mix of white and black ground pepper, allegedly they taste the same and white is best for things where black would look like contamination, I just prefer a mix.
My grinder is black only.

I like Black Pepper, but I also love white pepper especially on a Bacon and Tomato Baguette, a good dose of white pepper is superb.

Worcester sauce or brown sauce I like both.

And of course pepper. Not that your wife's cooking requires it of course I just like pepper.
