Vietnam pepper products

There are 5 main Vietnam pepper varieties: black pepper, white pepper, green pepper, red pepper and ground pepper.

Black pepper

Black pepper is the most popular pepper product being traded in the market both domestically and internationally.

Black pepper is harvested when the pepper tree is still green but appears some red or yellow on the bunch ( about 5% of the ripe fruit). Black pepper still has its outer shell.

White pepper

White pepper is basically produced by removing the outer shell, then goes through a washing process.

Most of the spicy essential oil of Vietnam pepper has been removed, but they have a more spicy taste because they are overcooked. Vietnam white pepper is mainly used to create an aroma for luxurious dishes without losing the aesthetics of the dish because of the black shell.
