Botanical Exploration of Malabar White Pepper

Malabar white pepper comes from the pepper plant, a climbing plant native to South Asia. Cultivated mainly on the Malabar coast in the state of Kerala, India, it is harvested from the ripe berries of the pepper plant. White pepper is harvested at optimal ripeness, stripped of its pericarp by retting, which gives it its white color and biting taste.

The Malabar Coast: the Historical Birthplace of Pepper

The first pepper plants originated in the state of Kerala, located on the Indian Malabar coast, making India the birthplace of pepper. The name pepper derives from Sanskrit (an Indo-European language): "Pippali," which gradually evolved into "pepper." Over the centuries, pepper has been introduced to other regions such as Cambodia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Brazil, Madagascar, and more recently, Cameroon in the 1930s. Malabar pepper was among the first to be exported from India, starting around 1661. Pepper has played a central role in many discoveries throughout history. For economic or cultural reasons, people exchanged, traveled, bought, sold, and established counters... Traces of the use of Malabar pepper have even been found in the mummification process of Ramses II.
