Cardamom - the queen of spices

Cardamom is the seed of a plant belonging to the 'Zingiberaceae' or ginger family. 'Elettaria Cardomomum', as it is botanically known, is a perennial crop native to the shady rain forests of India, Sri Lanka and Malaysia. It is today cultivated as a cash crop mainly in Guatemala and India.

Grown since 3000 BC, Indian cardamom is the best and most expensive of spices, commanding a price next only to that of saffron. The best of Indian cardamom comes from the southern state of Kerala, the most ideal location for cardamom cultivation.

Cardamom - the world's most favourite spice - Man's enchantment with this small green pod with black aromatic seeds inside and a distinctive sweet flavour, dates back several thousand years.
