DETAILS

Parameswaran’s Special Wynad Pepper is grown on the small Parameswaran estate (plantation) in the Wynad plateau of Kerala, India, long known for producing the world’s finest pepper. Hand-harvested between January and March, these exquisite peppercorns are grown organically with no chemicals or artificial fertilizers.

While most black peppers are harvested when the individual peppercorns are still green, Parameswaran’s On the Vine pepperberries are left on the vine until fully ripened to further develop and intensify the berries’ inherent flavor and spiciness.

Parameswaran’s Black Pepper is a mixture of Karimunda and Panniyor varieties of the piper niger, specially selected for their flavor and quality. The vines grow up to 30 to 40 feet high on host trees (silver oaks) and are harvested only when fully ripened on the vine. A vine may be harvested 10 to 12 times by men who climb bamboo poles made specially to prevent damage to the vines. After drying and cleaning, the pepper is immediately vacuum packed and bagged on the plantation to preserve its peak flavor.

To use these berries, simply snap them off the vine stem, and then grind or crush as with any type of peppercorn.
