Description :

This Nepalese pepper is picked from small trees from the Zanthoxylum armatum species, which grow in the wild in the Mahabharat range. With its fresh and citrus notes it is easy to see why some call it the grapefruit pepper. This little berry is used in all dishes from the Teraï lowlands of south Nepal.

It is here in the birth place of Buddha, amongst the tharu villages of thatched mud huts that these thorny bushes unfold their treasure at altitudes of 2,000m.

Origin : 

This berry grows on thorny bushes at an altitude of 2000m in the Mahabharat region, which gives it these citrus notes.

Tasting Notes : 

Grapefruit - Herbal - Woody
