Pepper from Cambodia, from the Kampot region, was highly renowned before the Khmer Rouge took over the country. A few years ago, in 2004, a Frenchman decided to unite the farmers who had a few pepper vines to restart production in the region.
In this plantation there is not a single gram of pesticide or chemical fertiliser. Everything is natural. The fertiliser used is made of a mixture of rice paddy crabs and grass. New soil is regularly added and watering is done manually, which calls for enormous effort. To do such a hard job, you need to be passionately in love with your land and its products, and we can assure you that this is the case for the Ngnoun family.
A very elegant pepper with sweet, captivating, slightly floral notes. To taste there are hints of marshmallow and its strength develops at length.
