Sarawak Pepper Flavours the World

Sarawak was once the largest producer of pepper and today she is still one of the largest producers of pepper in the world (Vietnam is now the largest producer of pepper). Most of the pepper vines are grown with belian support. Nowadays, due to the scarcity and exorbitant price of belian and the low price of pepper, I have seen farmers in Sarawak using living simpoh trees as support for pepper vines. Aren't our farmers ingenious?
