This is for a silly bit of fiction, so no urgency. . .
Would a well-sealed cask of black peppercorns retain any potency after
5 or 6 centuries? Would it still have an odor? Make people sneeze?
Or would it just be a pile of funny-shaped pebbles?
It would be nice if it was still sneeze-worthy, but if not, I can
write around that.
