Malabar pepper is a blend of black pepper that is grown in the Malabar coastal strip of India. Malabar has a rich history, which is the model for all widely used peppers. The blend guarantees a constant taste.

The Indian states of Kerala and Karnataka together form the Malabar coast (strip). A large part of this area was part of the ancient kingdom of Keralapoutra, where first the Portuguese, then the Dutch, the French and the British asserted their influence. It was already an important trading center 3,000 years before Christ, and therefore has a very mixed population. It is known as the birthplace of the pepper and the pepper trade, which began more than two millennia before our era with the first trade between the Egyptians and the inhabitants of the Malabar coast.

Around the beginning of the era other peoples also interfered with the trade on Malabar, both by land and by sea, from the moment people could understand the wind systems on the Indian Ocean and open structured trade routes. So far back is the tradition of Malabar pepper. In addition to this famous blend, the Malabar Strip also has two specific selections, the Tellicherry Bold and the Tellicherry Garbled Extra Bold, which we both also sell.


This black pepper is very suitable for general use. Because of the blend, the taste is constant.
