  • What's black pepper from Kampot?

    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.

    The harvest of Kâmpôt black pepper

    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.

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

    There are 4 colors of pepper, each color has a relation with the period of pepper harvesting.

    Here's the explanation:

    • Green pepper: it is a pepper picked young with little developed 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 is ripe, 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 released from its pericarp, it is rubbed before being dried.

    What about the gray pepper? It is most often a black pepper of mediocre quality, with a pungent flavour, without any aroma.

    The origins of Kâmpôt pepper

    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.
