Kampot Province - Cambodia
Kampot pepper is the berry of the piper nigrum, a tropical vine 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.
The red pepper of Kampot draws 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 caramel.
Cultivated without fertilizers or pesticides, Kampot pepper is a product of responsible agriculture.
Did you know? kampot pepper has been awarded the PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) label since 2010. 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 (Protected Designation of Origin) label, which gives it some protection on the European market.
Kampot pepper grows on a vine attached to the pepper tree, whose broad, oval leaves are medium green. It is harvested in bunches of berries.
Did you know? half of the Kampot pepper production, i.e. 1,500 tons, is exported to France. Our selection of red Kampot pepper owes its quality to the rigorous selection of peppercorns.
There are 4 varieties of Kampot pepper:
The main difference between Nepalese Timut pepper and Kampot pepper is the tree on which it grows.
The Kampot pepper grows on a tropical vine and is considered a rare and superior pepper. Timut pepper grows on an ash tree, which makes it a false pepper.
The first traces of the existence of Kampot pepper date back to the 13th century. A Chinese diplomat named Zhou Daguan discovered it during his visit to Khmer territory.
It is in the 14th century that its culture develops. Moreover, the Sultan of Aceh requested that all of 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 was limited, as it was restrained by the French who were trying to promote sales from Cochinchina.
Kampot pepper almost disappeared in 1975 when the pepper crops were razed to the ground to be converted into rice fields by the Khmer Rouge.
Did you know? in the Middle Ages, pepper was extremely expensive. The wealth of the rich was estimated by the amount of pepper they had.
Despite the risk of total disappearance of piper negrum, some families of farmers have managed to revive the production and today the red pepper of Kampot is again an exceptional pepper.
