  • What is Kâmpôt black pepper?

    Kâmpôt pepper is considered one of the best peppers in the world. It is cultivated in the southwest of Cambodia, in the provinces of Kâmpôt and Kep. It grows on very fertile soil rich in quartz, iron and minerals and comes from the tropical vine of Piper Nigrum, so it is a real pepper

    The cultivation of this pepper is protected by a PGI. To maintain their PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) classification, pepper trees must be spaced 180 cm apart. They can thus develop harmoniously.

    Did you know that? Farmers who grow Kâmpôt pepper are only allowed to use ecological natural fertilizers, most often a natural fertilizer made from humus, ground fish and water.

    David Vanille's choice: How can I not introduce you to Kâmpôt's black pepper when it is one of the best peppers in the world, if not the best? It is always a pleasure to visit this region and to see all the professionalism and passion of the farmers for this very special bay.

    Harvesting Kâmpôt black pepper

    If the pepper stems start to flower in June, the flowers will produce peppercorns in September.

    The harvest runs from October to May. The green pepper will be harvested first and the harvest will end with the more mature and therefore more aromatic red pepper.

    And the black pepper? It is harvested in January, when the green peppercorns turn yellow. It will be dried according to a strict protocol until its pericarp is covered in black.

    Did you know that? The sorting of Kâmpôt's black peppercorns is done by hand. The workers use tweezers, proof of the attention paid to this rare pepper of exceptional quality.

    The differences between black, green, red and green peppers..

    There are 4 colours of pepper, each colour has a relationship to the pepper harvest period.

    Here is the explanation:

    • Green pepper: it is a young pepper picked young with undeveloped aromas
    • Black pepper: it is a green pepper that has been dried in the sun until it turns black
    • Red pepper: it is a pepper harvested when it reaches maturity, i.e. when it is red. It is dried in the shade to preserve its colour and has fruity and powerful aromas.
    • White pepper: it is most often a red pepper that has been soaked in water for several days. Once released from its pericarp, it is rubbed before drying.

    What about the grey pepper? Most often it is a poor quality crushed black pepper with only a spicy flavour, without any aroma.

    The origins of Kâmpôt pepper

    Today, Kâmpôt pepper originates from Cambodia, and more precisely from the southwest of the country, between the Elephant Mountain and the sea. It should be noted that it was imported into this country by Chinese migrants from the island of Hainan.

    This rare pepper almost disappeared. The Sultan of Indonesia was afraid that Dutch settlers would seize these pepper trees, so he set them on fire. If cultivation resumed once the invader left, it would stagnate due to an economic-political situation favourable to the pepper of the settlers of Cochinchina.

    As early as 1975, it was again put at risk in favour of rice cultivation imposed by the Khmer Rouge. It was in 1979 that a few farmers relaunched production. However, the work does not pay and the culture is once again abandoned. In 2006, NGOs will decide to revalue the production of this rare pepper, which today benefits from a PGI.

    This rare pepper is now a reference both for its flavours and for the know-how of local farmers.
