Diaspora Co. tested 9 different peppers from some of the best farms and estates across India, and this one won by far. This pepper is complex and deep like nice wine, and still has a nice fruity heat in the back. Add whatever you use Turmeric to unlock the full nutritional potential.
This season’s pepper is grown on the Parameswaran family farm in Kerala, where Parameswaran and his son Akash have been naturally farming pepper for over 35 years, amidst passion fruit, tigers (no, really!), and the largest collection of bamboo and palm varieties in the region! Their Aranya pepper is vine ripened, hand harvested with utmost care to ensure maximum flavor and unreasonably tasty.
DIASPORA CO is an Indian spice company, founded by Sana Javeri Kadri, which works with 12 farms and 320+ farmworkers across 6 states to produce a range of single-origin spices. They proudly pay their farm partners an average of 6x more than the commodity price in an effort to decolonize the commodities back into seasonal crops and to turn a broken system into an equal exchange. Diaspora CO works in close partnership with the Indian Council of Agriculture Research to identify and provide ongoing support to their farm partners, all of whom are on the cutting edge of regenerative and sustainable agriculture. You won’t find fresher spices with this short of a supply chain anywhere else!
