What is Kampot black pepper?

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

The cultivation of this pepper is protected by a PGI. To keep their PGI(Protected Geographical Indication) classification, the pepper plants must be 180 cm apart. This allows them to grow harmoniously.

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

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

The harvest of Kâmpôt black pepper

If the stems of the pepper tree start to bloom in June, it is in September that the flowers will produce peppercorns.

Harvesting takes place from October to May. The green pepper is harvested first and the harvest ends with the collection of the more mature and therefore more aromatic red pepper.

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

Did you know that? Kâmpôt black peppercorns are sorted by hand. The workers use tweezers, proof of the attention paid to this rare pepper of exceptional quality.

The differences between black, green and red peppers..

There are 4 colors of pepper, each color has a relationship with the period of harvest of the pepper.

Here is the explanation:

  • Green pepper: it is a pepper picked young with little developed aromas
  • Black pepper : it is a green pepper which will have been dried in the sun until it takes its black color
  • Red pepper : it is a pepper harvested once it has reached 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: this is most often a red pepper that has been soaked in water for several days. Once freed from its pericarp, it is rubbed before being dried.

What about grey pepper? Itis usually a crushed black pepper of mediocre quality that has a pungent flavour without any aroma.


The origins of Kampot pepper

Kampot pepper originates from Cambodia, more precisely from the southwest of the country, between Elephant Mountain and the sea. It should be known 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 the Dutch colonists would take over these pepper trees, so he set fire to them. If the culture resumed once the invader left, it will stagnate because of an economic-political situation favorable to the pepper of the colonists of Cochinchina.

From 1975, it will be endangered again to the benefit of the rice culture imposed by the Khmer Rouge. It is in 1979 that some farmers will restart the production. However, the work does not pay and the culture is once again abandoned. In 2006, NGOs decided to revalorize the production of this rare pepper, which today benefits from a PGI.

Kampot pepper nowadays

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