White pepper is used for a milder palette over black pepper. Pepper is native to the Western Ghats of Kerala state (Idukki and Wayanad districts) as the diversity of its cultivated forms is greatest in this region. Out of over 75 cultivars of Black Pepper cultivated in India, the Karimunda variety is the most popular of all. We use zero budget natural farming, also known as spiritual farming, to create forest-like conditions in our fields to grow chemical-free and naturally grown pepper. Intercropped with tea, all our pepper is cultivated at an elevation higher than 1000 meters. For making white pepper, pepper is dipped in plain water for couple of days and then the outer layer is removed.
Our white pepper is hand-made and is made from the harvest obtained around April month. It is only available on pre-order till the month of May.
