This red Phu Quôc (phu quoc) pepper is, just like our heavy phu quoc, a pepper from the Vietnamese island of Phu Quôc. The red pepper is made with the red, ripe berry and therefore has a fantastic aroma.

Phu Quôc pepper has been grown in a traditional way, without chemical aids, since the 1950s, mainly by women. Pepper has been cultivated traditionally on the Vietnamese island of Phú Quốc since the early nineteenth century.

Pepper cultivation was introduced by the Chinese, but has improved greatly under French management, just as happened in Kampot in neighboring Cambodia.

Phú Quốc is located in 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 more than 100,000 inhabitants. The pepper is one of the sources of income, in addition to tourism and the famous nuoc mâm (fish sauce).

With government support, the traditional way of growing pepper in Phú Quốc is being cherished. Since the 1950s, pepper cultivation has mainly become a women's affair due to political developments and the war(s). And it still is on many plantations.

It is a relatively small pepper in Vietnam, because it makes up only 1% of the country's total pepper harvest, which is on average large-scale and mechanized. Unlike 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 white Phú Quốc pepper, Tiêu sọ đỏ Phú Quốc and the red Phú Quốc pepper, called Hạt tiêu chín đỏ Phú Quốc. The red pepper is picked when ripe and left to dry in the sun without further treatment. It then takes on a burgundy to reddish-brown color.


The pepper has several, subtle aromas of fruit (mango/raspberry) and cocoa, and a slightly sour accent. This makes the pepper suitable for all types of meat (red and white), fruit salads and dishes containing chocolate, even desserts.

Although the pepper also combines well with white fish, squid and squid, we generally recommend the milder white Phu Quôc for those combinations.
