Cardamom, Admired As The ‘Queen Of Spices’, Cardamom Is Among The Costliest Spices. In India Cardamom Is Grown In Kerala, Tamil Nadu And Karnataka.

Warm Humid Climate, Loamy Soil Rich In Organic Matter, Distributed Rainfall And Special Cultivation And Processing Methods All Combine To Make Indian Cardamom Truly Unique-In Aroma, Flavour, Size And Colour. It Has Well Established Culinary Values, And It Is Used In A Wide Range Of Sweets And Confectionery. Cardamom Is Of Two Types- Large Cardamom And Small Cardamom.

It Is One Of The Most Exotic And Highly Priced Spices Across The Globe After Vanilla And Saffron. Indian Cardamom Has A History As Old As Human Civilization. Cardamom Is A Native Plant Of Parts Of India, Sri Lanka And Parts Of Southeast Asia, Where It Occurs In The Wild. It Has Been Introduced To Other Parts Of Asia And Is Widely Grown For Its Aromatic Seeds. Cardamom Is Called As A Versatile Spice Because Of Its Usage In Both Sweet And Salty Foods.

Cardamoms Are Recognized By Their Small Seed Pods: Light Green, Triangular In Cross-Section And Spindle-Shaped, With A Thin, Papery Outer Shell And Small, Black Seeds Inside The Shell.
