Powdered long pepper berries of Ishigaki Jima 100g
Long pepper originally comes from South-East Asia, more precisely from Java and Sumatra. It seems that during the 15th century a boat from the Netherlands would have introduced some plants in Japan. Long pepper plants are cultivated on rocky grounds in Yaeyama, Islands South-West of Okinawa. True local specialty, this pepper is approved by a large majority by the best Japanese chefs.
