This white Phú Quốc pepper is traditionally produced on the Vietnamese island of Phú Quốc. The pepper is of superior quality, 0% tạp chất, ideally suited in the preparation of fish and squid dishes, and in exotic fruit salads.

Pepper has been cultivated in a traditional way on the Vietnamese island of Phú Quốc since the early 19th century. Pepper cultivation was introduced by the Chinese, but has greatly improved under French management, just as happened in Kampot, in neighboring Cambodia.

Phú Quốc is located in the province of Kiên Giang, and with approximately 590 square kilometers is the largest island in Vietnam. 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, next to tourism and the famous nuoc mâm (fish sauce).

With the support of the government, the traditional way in which the pepper is grown on Phú Quốc is cherished. Since the fifties of the last century, 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, as it only makes up 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 a 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 it is ripe and then soaked in water to loosen the 'shell'. The white core that then remains is dried in the sun. It has a somewhat creamy color. We offer the premium quality white pepper, 0% tạp chất, free from impurities and with a pleasant blanched ferment taste.

Use

The pepper has various, subtle aromas including fruit (mango/raspberry) and a slightly sour accent. This makes the pepper suitable for all types of white meat (from veal and poultry to - in French - tripe and andouilette), white fish, squid and squid. You can also use the pepper in combination with an apple or pear.
