Pohnpei Pepper


The mere mention of the words "Pohnpei pepper" immediately gets the attention of people that have been fortunate enough to taste this exquisite spice. Pohnpei (formerly Ponape) is world famous for its peppercorns. We buy our pepper directly from the farmers and share a portion of all sales with them.

Ninety percent of the world's pepper comes from only four countries---India, Indonesia, Brazil, and Malaysia. Pohnpei will never play in those big leagues; the island has 130 square miles of total area, and only 40 acres is planted in pepper. The Pohnpei Agricultural Station imported 300 rooted pepper cuttings in 1960. The cuttings came from Fiji, but the plant variety originated in Malaysia's Sarawak. They were of a gourmet-quality strain, and they loved life on Pohnpei.

What pepper vines love might not seem idyllic to people. They need a lot of water---100 inches of rain a year minimum. The rain should be distributed evenly over all twelve months; they don't tolerate a dry season. They also like it hot. An equatorial heat and high humidity suits them perfectly. Pohnpei lies near 10 degrees north; it has only three totally clear days in a typical year, and no dry season.

No returns are accepted due to the nature of the product.
