La Plantation manages 22,000 Kampot pepper posts on 20 hectares. They grow the pepper in a traditional, organic way, in strict compliance with the PGI standards for Kampot pepper and use only organic fertilizers.
Harvested by hand at full maturity, and then cleaned and sun-dried, these whole peppercorns are the flagship product of the PGI appellation. Its unique taste is less spicy than black peppercorns, and offers sweet notes of red fruits, prunes, dates, and honey. Its exotic perfume is amazing on your salads and main courses. For a special treat try it on strawberries or pears, where its delicate aroma can really shine, and don't forget to try it in chocolate, from ice cream to brownies to chocolate ganache... A fun and tasty treat!
The Kampot red and white peppers are extremely rare peppers because of the difficulty in harvesting them at the right moment at full maturity and the need to have a large enough workforce to pick these peppercorns by hand.
