India has always reigned supreme in the production and export of this most exotic and sought -after spice. Pepper production accounts for one quarter of the global spice trade.
Indian pepper had a profound influence on the European economy of the middle ages. Indian pepper is grown in the monsoon forests along the Malabar Coast in south India.
There was even a time when pepper was worth its weight in gold. Pepper probably changed the course of history being the single most important factor in the European search for sea routes to the East. This quest for pepper dominated the spice trade for centuries, and without it, the colonial Empires of modern history might not have existed.
