This white Phú Quốc pepper is traditionally produced on the Vietnamese island of Phú Quốc. The pepper is of superior quality, 0% tạp chất, ideally suited in the preparation of fish and squid dishes, and in exotic fruit salads.
On the Vietnamese island of Phú Quốc, pepper has been grown traditionally since the beginning of the 19th century. Pepper cultivation was introduced by the Chinese, but has undergone significant improvement under French management, just as happened at the time in Kampot, in neighboring Cambodia.
Phú Quốc is located in the Kiên Giang province, and is the largest island in Vietnam with approximately 590 square kilometers. It is part of an archipelago of 22 islands, and is closer to the coast of Cambodia than that of Vietnam. The island has around 100,000 inhabitants. Pepper is one of the sources of income, in addition to tourism and the famous nuoc mâm (fish sauce).
With the support of the government, the traditional way in which pepper is grown on Phú Quốc is cherished. From the fifties of the last century, pepper cultivation, due to political developments and the war (s), became primarily a women's affair. And that is still on many plantations.
It is a relatively small pepper in Vietnam, because it accounts for only 1% of the total pepper harvest in the country, which on average takes place on a large-scale and mechanized basis. In contrast to the pepper from Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu, on the east coast, east of Ho Chi Minh city, the Phú Quốc has not yet been eligible for geographical indication (GI).
We offer you the red and white Phú Quốc pepper. The red pepper is picked ripe and then soaked in water to release the peel. The white core that remains then is dried in the sun. It has a somewhat creamy color. We offer the premium quality white pepper, 0% tấp chất, free from impurities and with a pleasantly balanced fermented taste.
The pepper has various, subtle aromas including fruit (mango / raspberry) and a slightly acidic accent. This makes the pepper suitable for all types of white meat (from veal and poultry to tripe and andouilette), white fish, squid and octopus. Also use the pepper in combination with apple or pear.
