Red long pepper is called Latin Piper longum. It belongs to the & nbsp; plant species of the pepper plants - piperaceae. It is also called rod pepper, jamborandi or Bengali pepper. It was the first pepper that reached Europe at the time of Alexander the Great. It was used for a very long time before & nbsp; the Pepper Grains known to us today have replaced the long pepper & nbsp;. The long Pepper is the original eponym of the genus Pepper - Piper.
What distinguishes this long pepper, however, is that it was harvested at full ripe, namely, when its color was already reddish brown. It is very difficult to match this special level of maturity. There is a great risk for the farmer to leave his pepper on the trees for so long, because if he does not pay close attention and the weather suddenly changes, his pepper is spoiled. That is also the reason why there is not so much of this special pepper variety on the world market. Not & nbsp; Many pepper farmers may take this big risk.
