Kâmpôt pepper is considered to be one of the best peppers in the world. It is cultivated in the south-west of Cambodia, in the provinces of Kâmpôt and Kep. It grows on a 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. In order to keep their PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) classification, the 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 based on humus, crushed fish and water.
David Vanille's choice: How can I 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 visit this region and see all the professionalism and passion of the growers for this very special berry.
If the stems of the pepper plant begin to flower in June, it is in September that the flowers will produce peppercorns.
The harvest lasts from October to May. The green pepper will be harvested first and the harvest will end with the collection of the more mature and therefore more aromatic red pepper.
What about black pepper? It is harvested in January, when the green peppercorns turn yellow. It is dried according to a strict protocol until its pericarp is 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.

Today, Kâmpôt pepper is native to Cambodia, and more precisely to the southwest of the country, between the Elephant Mountain and the sea. It was imported into this country by Chinese migrants from the island of Hainan.
This rare pepper has almost disappeared. The sultan of Indonesia being afraid that the Dutch settlers would take possession of these pepper plants, he set fire to them. If cultivation resumed once the invader left, it would stagnate due to an economic-political situation favourable to the pepper of the Cochinchine settlers.
As early as 1975, it will be further endangered by the rice cultivation imposed by the Khmer Rouge. In 1979, a few farmers restarted production. However, the work doesn't pay and the crop is once again abandoned. In 2006, NGOs will decide to boost the production of this rare pepper, which today benefits from a PGI.
This rare pepper is today a reference both for its flavours and for the know-how of local farmers.
