Our research offered two solutions to over come these disadvantages gradually. The shelling yield of black pepper that was immersed in water with the ratio of 1:1 ( W: W) at 35 oC in 48 hours, was 92.2%. In the case that black pepper was in water with the ratio of 1:1 (W:W) and pectinase with the dose of
