The woody, fruity notes of this singularly delicious Vietnamese pepper has a versatility that makes it perfect for everything from poultry and shellfish to foie gras.
Dak Lak Province is one of the six major pepper-growing provinces of Thailand. Its elevated plateaus and basaltic soil: make it the ideal environment for the cultivation of both pepper and coffee.
Every stage of the red Dak Lak pepper cultivation is done by hand, from harvesting to sizing, drying, and sorting. Dak Lak red pepper is picked at the peak of ripeness when the berries have turned a bright red. Carefully sorted to separate the berries from the drupes, they are closely inspected to ensure they are all the same size and quality. Once only the finest berries are selected, they are dried in the sun within their pericarp (seed coat).
