What is Kampot red pepper?

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.

The harvest of Kampot red pepper

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.

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 mild taste
  • Red pepper: a variety of exceptional quality, picked at maturity in March, 3 months after the harvest of green pepper. It is dried for 8 days and develops fruity aromas that go perfectly with red meat.
  • Black pepper: an oxidized version of green pepper with a pronounced spicy taste
  • White pepper: this is the heart of the dried red pepper. Its taste is spicy, but less pronounced than that of black pepper. It has citrus and herbal aromas.

Differences between Kampot pepper and Timut pepper from Nepal

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 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 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.

Kampot pepper today

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.
