Black Pepper Production.:
Today, the major commercial producers of pepper are India and Indonesia. The most important producers are India before Indonesia, which together account for about 50% of the whole production volume.
In trade, the pepper grades are identified by their origin. The most important Indian grades are Malabar and Tellicherry (Thalassery). The Malabar grade is regular black pepper with a slightly greenish hue, while Tellicherry is a special product (see below). Both Indian black peppers, but especially the Tellicherry grade, are very aromatic and pungent. In the past, Malabar pepper was also traded under names like Goa or Aleppi. Cochin is the pepper trade center in India.
In South East Asia, the most reputated proveniences for black pepper are Sarawak in insular Malaysia and Lampong from Sumatra/Indonesia. Both produce small-fruited black pepper that takes on a greyish colour during storage; both have a less-developed aroma, but Lampong pepper is pretty hot. Sarawak pepper is mild and often described fruity. Black pepper from other countries where it has been introced to more recently is named after the trade center (Bangkok, Saigon); these proveniences are less valued, as they vary in heat and lack the complex aroma found in Indian and (to lesser degree) Malesian cultivars.
The most important source of white pepper is the small Indonesian island Bangka, south east of Sumatra. The peppercorns are named Muntok after the island's main port. Smaller amounts of white pepper are produced in Sarawak, which is particularily light-coloured; the best quality is known as Sarawak Cream Label. There is also Brazil white pepper, but it has a poorer flavour and is, therefore, less reputated in the international trade.
Brazil produces black, white and green peppercorns; the pepper is grown along the Amazonas river in the state of Para, where the paracress comes from. Brazil almost holds a monopoly for green pepper as the original production in Madagascar has declined. Brazil black and white pepper are quite mild. All Brazil pepper is named after its main port, Belem.
