Heaven on Earth is one way to describe India's Banasura Highlands, where time seems to stand still.

Due to the local climate, pepper plants have evolved into a unique species reaching a height of at least 12 meters compared to an average normal height of 3-4 m.

Harvesting usually takes place at the end of March when the berries are fully ripe and are then left for another two weeks to maximize flavor and aromas in accordance with nature.

Due to the harvesting difficulties linked to its location and the intense effort of sorting and drying, the harvest is limited to around 2 tons per year, which makes it a rare pepper.

It is a very aromatic and complex pepper. With a generous body, it develops woody and herbaceous flavors reminiscent of black tea and some leather notes. It is a well-balanced pepper offering a good length in the mouth, the result is warm and spicy with a slight bitterness.
