Mack Khen berries are very present on the mountainous reliefs of Vietnam and Laos.
They are harvested by the villagers and are essential in daily cooking and pharmacopoeia.
The Luang Prabang region has managed to preserve its mountains from deforestation. This allows Zanthoxylum Rhetsa, the Mack Khen berries tree to endure.

This tree has thorns on its trunk and branches and produces berry clusters of very interesting elegance and aromatic complexity.

Harvesting these berries is complicated because they are located on the upper part of the tree.
