About Phu Quoc Pepper

Although the main harvest season starts from February to July, you can visit the farms at any time of the year.

The peppercorn in Phu Quoc is still harvested by hands and divided into three types:

  • black pepper
  • white pepper
  • red pepper

The red pepper is the best one, and it’s especially very famous for its heat and strong aroma.

The farmers in Phu Quoc do not use any chemical fertilizer but only natural ones. Also, the peppers are dry naturally by the sunlight and not with a machine as in other regions.

Phu Quoc produces about 1,000 tons of the best quality of peppercorn on the market, and there is approximately 385 ha of pepper farms.

You will find most of the pepper plantations in Cua Dong and Cua Can Villages.

The pepper farm is definitely worth visiting and experiencing on your trip to Phu Quoc island, Vietnam.

I visited a few farms in Phu Quoc, and my favorite one is Phu Quoc Peppercorn.

Peppercorn is located in the North of Phu Quoc island, quite close to starfish beach, or known as Rach Vem beach.

This farm offers excellent farm tours for 30,000 VND or $1.5 per person and takes you to pepper farm, vegetable garden, and beer brewery.

After the farm, we visited Kinh Beer brewery. It’s a local beer and made from four basic ingredients: Barley, water, hops, and yeast.

You can find Kinh beer in many restaurants on Phu Quoc island.

Our last stop was the cafe. Here, we had some pepper tasting, and each of us also got a cup of pepper tea. The tea had an interesting taste, as it was mixed with honey, cinnamon, and pepper.
