This red long pepper is a sharp, ripe pepper with a complex taste. It is grown in the Cambodian region of Kampot, famous for its black pepper. This long pepper is excellent for Southeast Asian cuisine and delicious in sweet dishes and with goat cheese.
This red long pepper is harvested from the Javanese long pepper (Piper retrofractum) that is grown in Cambodia in the same region where the famous Kampot pepper grows. It comes from the ripe fruit, which can be a fire red, and is reminiscent of a chili pepper, but it is not.
This long pepper is grown in the forests where the farmers plant them. They use the shade of existing trees and the fertile, moist environment, so no fertilization and irrigation is needed. The plants soon bear fruit and give more yield every year. After the third year, the plants are harvested and replaced.
This long Kampot pepper is one of the three types of long peppers that we have in store. From Japan we also have Javanese long pepper from Ishigaki Jima and from Vietnam the Indian long pepper (Piper longum) from Binh Duong.
Smell and taste

- germacreen D *, spicy woody
- β-caryophyllene *, sweet spicy and woody
- 3-careen, citrus-like
- D-limonene (dipentene), sweetish orange flavor, modestly present in nutmeg, mace and cardamom,
- α- and β-pinene *, woody woody pine scent, as in cumin, pine (pine cone), juniper and hemp
- β-myrcene *, spicy aroma, with notes of fruits (mango, grape, peach) and mint
- sabines *, responsible for the woody, camphor-like taste of black pepper, among other things
- α-phellandrene *, pleasant citrus and woody pepper flavor
The easiest way to use long pepper is to cut or break the pepper into pieces and then jack or grind these pieces, for example, in a coffee grinder that you have specifically intended for grinding spices.
Red long peppers combine perfectly with lamb meat, goat meat, goat cheese, duck, fruit and in general dishes in which cinnamon, cloves and saffron can also be used.
