Vine-ripened before drying to create a rich, fresh, ripe and somewhat sweet pepper profile.

All true pepper whether black, white, green or pink comes from the berries of a tropical evergreen vine. Black peppercorns are the green unripe peppercorns picked from the vine and dried in the sun. The natural enzymes in the outer husk (pericarp) of the peppercorns turn the green berries black on drying, forming the volatile oil which gives black pepper its characteristic flavour.

These Kampot Red peppercorns are the fully ripe berries which are dried carefully to prevent the enzyme reaction from turning them completely black. Kampot Red peppercorns have a sweet, almost fruity note, combined with an underlying heat.

Other Common Names
