Grown in the remote mountain region of Kerala, where you will still find wild elephants, tigers and buffaloes, this organic, jungle pepper offers a sensational taste experience, and an amazing aroma. This pepper is so pure that the Indian Ayurveda doctors use it as a natural remedy.
Green peppercorns are harvested when the berry is immature. With a fresh flavour and less pungent than black or white pepper, green peppercorns go especially well with fruity tasting foods. Try them ground on salads, steamed vegetables, salsas, and in sauces.
The crop yield is low in these traditional varieties The cultivation is about 1000m altitude and is harvested to strict environmental guidelines. There is a complete absence of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. Pressing the berries by hand in several passes contributes to the levels of essential oils in the pepper being significantly higher than for other types of pepper.
After harvesting the pepper is sun dried, sorted and packaged and subsequently, completely untreated, is shipped without the use of fumigation, irradiation or chemicals.
The Indian producer groups receive an additional 50% above the standard market price for this unique quality.
