Once favoured by the Romans, Visigoths and Alexandre Dumas of Three Musketeers fame, This (Long Lost) Pepper has largely been forgotten in modern cuisine. Which is strange because as a Pepper it is simply amazing. (Please note this Long Pepper is the tasty Piper retrofractum type - not to be confused with the Indian variety of long pepper, Piper longum or Pippali used in Ayuverdic medicine. Now you know.)
Delivered in a resealable pouch to preserve absolute freshness.
