Sammamish, WA (PRWEB) April 6, 2007
In an effort to offer the most extensive selection of peppercorns in the USA, Pepper-Passion Inc is pleased to announce the addition of the extremely rare Pohnpei pepper to our product line.
Pohnpei (formerly Ponape) is a small island in Micronesia where peppercorns have been grown only in the last 50 years or so. The terroir of this small island produced a small peppercorn harvest that became highly prized and developed an extremely loyal following. However, some years ago the government became over involved in this small industry and many farmers plowed under their vines and the retail price of the Pohnpei pepper began climbing until the retail price was in the neighborhood of $150 per pound.
We have received many requests in the past to carry this pepper, but we were unable to find a reliable source that could offer it to us at a reasonable price. We now have a source that we have confidence in and we are able to offer this unique pepper. The price is still higher than all of the other varieties we offer but we feel that the true Pepper-Passionate will find this to be "a must have" item. Pricing for the 4 oz and 10 oz Value Packs are $25 and $50 respectively. These prices are high, but lower than what other sellers are asking.
So what does this pepper taste like? That is a difficult question to answer. The aroma is pleasingly aromatic without being too bold or having any specific flavor note predominate. The flavor is smooth (some say sweet) and very well balanced. It certainly has a flavor distinct from the other varieties we offer.
We have not added this to our Black Pepper sampler pack due to the high price and the limited quantity we were able to secure. Our newsletter subscribers will get the "first crack" as this new product so visit our web site now if you would like to give it a try.
