Is That "Kampot Pepper" You're Buying in Kampot Really From Kampot? (VIDEO)

Do you have a Cambodian trip report you want to share? Post it here, and feel free to link to your blog if it's a travel blog for Cambodia, South East Asia, or anywhere really. You can ask and answer questions about travel advice in Cambodia or just share your pictures and videos with us. Most people who live in or visit Cambodia have also checked out nearby countries like Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines, and you can get to most of these countries by traveling overland, so put any travel plans, reviews or questions here. Discussions about dirt bike trails in here as well.

The "long pepper" has a distinctly different flavour to other pepper, to my taste. We also use it in one of our soaps.

What are you inferring here,that there are people counterfeiting Kampot pepper, akin to the fake Black Label? Kampot pepper has been cultivated in Kampot from before the 13th century and the original plants were thought to be from India.

Black pepper (Piper nigrum) is a flowering vine of the Piperaceae family, native to the Malabar Coast. This vine grew wild in the forest, along tree trunks, in the Kerala in India. Plants were then transported and grown in tropical areas, such as Brazil, Madagascar and South-East Asian countries.http://kampotpepper.com/

Kampot pepper has a EU Protected Geographical Indication: The coveted Protected Geographical Indication designation, or PGI, means that any product sold in EU countries calling itself "Kampot pepper" must come from a designated region in southern Cambodia that includes Kampot and neighbouring Kep province.

The recognition was awarded to Kampot pepper on Feb. 18, making it the first Cambodian product to receive the label, the EU office in Cambodia said in a statement this week.http://www.intracen.org/blog/Cambodias- ... ndication/

Heres the relevant document:

Hardly. I got it directly from the guy who runs the NGO that grows it.

Here's a thought - STFU when you don't know what you're talking about.

like wagyu beef, wagyu is just a perticular breed of cow that used to be farmed in only certain areas in japan, but now a days, wagyu cows can be farmed in australia or anywhere else in the world but still carries the wagyu branding, so unless it can be verified that the pepper is of kampot species and farmed in kampot then its not truely kampot's kampot pepper

I'm not confident about whether he's just a fool, or he's attempting to proposition me. Either way, what a muppet.
