  • What is Kampot red pepper?

    Kampot pepper is the berry of Piper Nigrum, a tropical liana that grows in Cambodia. It is cultivated in an ecological and reasoned way by small producers in the province of Kampot, located in the south of Cambodia as well as in the province of Kep.

    Kampot red pepper gets all its aromas from its location and the climatic elements specific to the region: sun, sea breeze, moderate rainfall... Its harvest in full maturity brings us its intense notes of caramels.

    Cultivated without fertilizers or pesticides, Kampôt pepper is a product of responsible agriculture

    Did you know that? : Since 2010, Kampot pepper has had the IGP (Protected Geographical Indication) label. This label certifies that the quality of the products that hold it is linked to their place of production and their processing technique. In 2016 it also received the PDO label (Protected Designation of Origin), which gives it a certain protection on the European market.

    The Kampot red pepper harvest

    Kampot pepper grows on a liana attached to the pepper plant, which has broad, oval leaves of a medium green colour. It is harvested in the form of bunches of berries.

    Did you know that? Half of Kampot pepper production, or 1,500 tons, is exported to France. Our selection of Kampot red pepper owes its quality to the rigorous selection of the peppercorns

    The different varieties of Kampot pepper

    There are 4 varieties of Kampot pepper:

    • Green pepper: a pepper picked young on the vine and with a not very pronounced taste
    • Red pepper: a variety of exceptional quality, picked at maturity in March, 3 months after the green pepper harvest. It is dried for 8 days and develops fruity aromas that blend perfectly with red meat.
    • Black pepper: an oxidized version of green pepper with a pronounced spicy taste
    • White pepper: it is in fact the heart of the dried red pepper. Its taste is pungent, but less pronounced than black pepper. It has aromas of citrus fruits and herbs

    Differences between Kampot pepper and Nepal Timut pepper

    The main difference between Nepal Timut pepper and Kampot pepper is the tree on which it grows.

    Kampot pepper grows on a tropical liana and is considered a rare and superior quality pepper. Timut pepper, on the other hand, grows on an ash tree or clave tree, which makes it a false pepper.

    The origins of Kampot pepper

    The first traces of the existence of Kampot pepper date back to the 13th century. A Chinese diplomat named Zhou Daguan discovered it while visiting Khmer territory.

    It was in the 14th century that its cultivation developed. Moreover, the Sultan of Aceh asked that all his plantations be burned to prevent the Dutch, with whom he was at war, from plundering his crops during the Aceh war.

    The cultivation of Kampot pepper has been limited because it was contained by the French who were trying to promote the sale of Cochinchine.

    Kampot pepper almost disappeared in 1975 when pepper crops were razed to be converted into rice fields by the Khmer Rouge.

    Did you know that? In the Middle Ages, pepper was extremely expensive. The wealth of the rich was estimated by the amount of pepper they owned

    Kampot pepper nowadays

    In spite of the risk of total disappearance of the piper negrum, some families of farmers have managed to revive production and today Kampot red pepper is once again used as an exceptional pepper

    Other uses of pepper

    Kampot pepper is a rare pepper that has the same virtues as other varieties of real peppers, namely :

    • Facilitates digestion
    • Reduces water retention
    • Calms dysentery
    • Treats bruises
    • Calms the ebb and flow
    • Relieves stomach pain
    • Stimulates sexuality (aphrodisiac)
    • Has antidepressant properties

    However, be careful not to overuse it, as excessive consumption of pepper can :

    • Causing vision problems
    • Causing rashes
    • Worsening ulcers

    Sans goût ni de piquant. Autant ne rien mettre.

    Comment from David Vanille the 29/06/2020
    Bonjour Clément, Le poivre rouge de Kampôt est mon préféré. Votre lot est le même que celui des autres commentaires récents. Le poivre est parfaitement calibré, magnifique couleur rouge ébène, notes caramélisées et confites. Au palais, il offre une très belle longueur, piquant modéré, pour moi c'est simplement magique. Après tout, c'est une question de goût. Passez une belle journée, Au plaisir, David
