Akesson Voatsiperifery "Wild" pepper comes from the tropical forest of Madagascar. It is the rarest and most extraordinary pepper we have found. The plant grows exclusively "wild" up to 20 meters in the tropical forest. Only the young shouts on the top of the trees produce the frits(Voa), which need to be handpicked by the villagers from the east coast of the island. Its refined earthy and woody taste is completed by citrus and flowery aromas bringing freshness to the palate. Particularly long tasting, it works wonderfully with fish and meats as well as fruits and chocolate. The delicate kernels are slightly smaller than his organic peppers.
Located in undeveloped wild tropical forest of eastern Madagascar near the Coast. Harvested by the villagers there by hand from trees that can grow to 20 meters in height.
