Stone Town Spice Tour

Stone Town Travel Photographer

We stayed in Stone Town during our first days on Zanzibar island. We explored the narrow streets of the beautiful town, we ate Zanzibari food, I took an enormous amount of photos of doors and we went on a spice tour.

Here are some images from our adventures.

And the interesting thing about it is that all green, black, red and white pepper are the same plant but the process of production is different.
Green pepper = green, unripe peppercorns, treated in a way to retain the green color.
Black pepper = green, unripe peppercorns, cooked in hot water and dried in the sun.
White pepper = the seed of the peppercorns, the darker skin being removed. Quite a laborious process which leads to the white pepper being most expensive.
Red pepper = ripe peppercorns.
