A long journey

In 1899 Peru was the first country to accept Japanese immigration. Some Japanese emigrants brought for their personal need some pepper plants. This cultivation was only carried out in their gardens for personal use.

It was in the Ucayali river basin in Peru, about fifty years ago that our producer's grandfather received some pepper plants from a Japanese emigrant.

After years of harassment by the guerrillas, it was only at the end of the 1990s that the family found a unique terroir in the equatorial forest in order to finally express all their ancestral know-how as farmers. This gives today an exceptional pepper grown by the Yupanqui family from Cuzco (Peru)

For the record Yupanqui is the name of several Inca emperors meaning "Priceless" or "the one who shines"
