This black pepper is grown in what once were the private spice gardens of the first Sultan Seyyid Said, but the area has now been split up between multiple smallhold farmers.
The pepper is ripened on the vine until the first fruits turn orange and it is then harvested by hand and sun-dried. This pepper really embodies the terroir of the forest it grows in – no monoculture here!
A staple in every household, this black pepper is bursting with citrusy aromas painted on a bold earthy background. This pepper will go perfectly with big flavours like steak au poivre or some tofu in a black pepper sauce – the choice is yours!
