This long pepper is a sharp, unripe pepper with a complex flavor. It is grown in the Cambodian region of Kampot, famous for its black pepper (Piper nigrum). This black long pepper is a versatile pepper for Southeast Asian and European cuisine.

This black long pepper is harvested from the Javanese long pepper (Piper retrofractum) grown in Cambodiawd in the same region where the famous Kampot pepper grows. It comes from the ripe fruit, which may be bright red and resemble a chili pepper, but is not.

This long pepper is grownwd in the forests where farmers plant them. They take advantage of the shade of existing trees and the fertile, moist environment, so no fertilization and irrigation is required. The plants quickly bear fruit and produce more yields every year. After the third year, the plants are dug up and replaced.

This Kampot pepper is one of the four types of long peppers we have in the store. From Japan we have the Javanese long pepper from Ishigaki Jima - currently not available - and from Vietnam the Indian long pepper (Piper longum) from Dak Lak - Binh Duong, and the Cape long pepper (timiz) from Ethiopia.

Smell and taste

This long pepper is quite sharp, especially for a pepper of this type. You taste a palette of sweet citrus notes, but the spicy-woody scent of black pepper *) predominates. These are the main seasonings in long pepper:

  • germacrene D *, spicy woody
  • β-caryophyllene *, sweet spicy and woody
  • 3-carene, citrusy
  • D-limonene (dipentene), sweet orange flavor, occurring modestly in nutmeg, mace and cardamom,
  • α- and β-pinene *, woody pine odor, as in cumin, pine cone, juniper berry and hemp
  • β-myrcene *, spicy aroma, with notes of fruits (mango, grape, peach) and mint
  • sabinene *, responsible for the woody, camphoraceous flavor of black pepper, among others
  • 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 mortar or grind the pieces, for example in a coffee grinder specifically designed for grinding spices.

Use black long pepper in stews and in spice mixtures. It goes perfectly with red meat, lamb, duck, terrines, tuna and oily fish. In desserts you prefer to use the red, ripe version.
