Learn more about why the Kampot Peppercorn is the best in the world.
This week, we are launching our first series of "FYI" journal posts regarding our coveted product, Kampot peppercorns. This product comes in three variations: black, red, and white and can be purchased directly here.
Each peppercorn variation is harvested from a vine that grows for at least 3 years, before farmers are able to pick them. Pictured above is a vine at it's optimal growth stage of nearly 16 feet! A peppercorn vine can grow close to 20 feet at the latter end of it's production life. To put that into perspective, the average height of a Christmas tree is 6.5 feet. A Kampot peppercorn vine, if taken care of can grow for 20 years and reach nearly 3x the size of a typical Christmas tree!
Other general benefits include:
- Kampot peppercorns are specific to the Kampot region in Cambodia - allowing these peppers to have a Protected Geographical Indication Certification (similar to Champagne, which is harvested in a specific region in France)
- Natural quartz is found in the Kampot region, keeping the soil nutrient rich to prolong the life of the peppercorn vines
- No where else in the world, can you find another variation of Kampot peppercorns, making these peppercorns a true treasure of Cambodia
To learn more, stay posted on our blog for a new post next week. Cheers!
