Pepper Harvest Trip • Days 9 - 12 • Rajasthan India

Day 7, Thursday, Wayanad, India

We spent three days in Wayanad watching the pickers pick pepper. (And no, none of them were named Peter.)

Mumbai and Kannur were so interesting, I almost forgot the real reason we came to India - to see the pepper harvest.

Since I started selling spices a few years ago, I’ve always wanted to come back to India to learn more about the black stuff that sits on nearly every kitchen table. Most of us use pepper on a daily basis, but few have any idea where or how it’s grown.
