Karimunda Pepper is an ancestral pepper. We are on the botanical origin.
It comes from the original cradle of Pepper, the Western Ghats massif. Ours comes to us more precisely from our producer located in the western foothills of this massif, called the Cardamom range, in the very south-west of India.
It is a vigorous pepper with black and cocoa colors. Very dense, intense, it is a concentrate of essential oils. In his native region and in ancient times, it was even said to be used in guns instead of bullets!

Plant & perfume
Pepper (piper nigrum) is a major spice, the most important in production in the world. The pepper plant is a climbing vine that can reach ten meters in height. The pepper then appears in the form of a hanging cluster, formed of twenty to thirty grains tightly packed around the stem.
Karimunda pepper is an ancient and endemic variety of Kerala (India). Its concentration of essential oil and its density make it an intense, pungent and very aromatic pepper.
Cooking and Virtue
This pepper must express itself on its own to feel its quintessence. It is flavor in its own right, so prefer delicate foods to promote its expression. Thus The Karimunda is particularly interesting with seafood products, whether fish or seafood.
It will express itself and reveal all its aromas on white meats or salads.
But nothing prevents you from also using it on your vegetables and legumes.
A long journey
The cradle of pepper is located in the Western Ghats mountains, straddling the states of Kerala and Karnataka in southwestern India. It then spread to most tropical regions.
Karimunda is the ancestral variety of Kerala and probably the original variety of pepper. Ours comes to us more precisely from our producer located in the western foothills of the Cardamom range, a few tens of km from Cochin, in the very south-west of India.
Traces of a probable ancient trade in pepper from India to Egypt have been discovered by the presence of peppercorns both in the nostrils and in the belly of Ramses the Great, perhaps this was the Karimunda!
