Peppercorns-Kampot Vine Ripened
Kampot Red Pepper is the sun-dried product of the fully ripened berry, the berries are left to turn red on the vine before harvesting. The berries must be picked at the right moment before they spoil, are blanched and dried in the sun for three to four days.
The red peppercorns are then individually sorted by hand. Red Pepper is a much rarer and premium pepper with a unique flavour which is sweeter, more full and rounded, but with less heat than Black Pepper.
Red Pepper is considerably less common than black or white pepper and is in extremely high demand.
