The Indonesian lampong pepper is a fine-leaved pepper variety, which originated in Sumatra, and is named after the Lampung region. This Lampong pepper comes from this region.
Lampong pepper is a fine-leaved standard pepper with fairly small berries. Although it originates from India, it is known as a Sumatran pepper variety, and is named after the Lampung region, an important pepper area from ancient times.
Much is known about pepper cultivation in Lampung, but only since the 15th century. What is certain, however, is that the pepper was cultivated there considerably earlier, probably since the beginning of the era. For a long time black pepper was an insignificant crop in Sumatra and elsewhere in Indonesia compared to native pepper varieties such as the long pepper (Piper retrofractum).
That gradually changed. By the end of the 16th century, almost as much pepper was grown in Sumatra and Banten (Bantam) as in India, the country of origin. Aceh - a region in the extreme north of Sumatra - was even the center of pepper cultivation at that time.
The lampong variety is also cultivated elsewhere, in and outside Indonesia. It is one of the two varieties of pepper that are grown in Camdodjan Kampot and are called Kampot pepper.
The pepper is pungent, and is considered the standard against which other peppers are measured. Its easy to combine flavor palette makes it the ideal pepper for seasonings with pepper, rubs, marinades, and on meat and egg.
