About Cardamom

Cardamom is a dried fruit of the ginger family, referred as "The Queen of Spices" because of its aroma and taste.

Cardamom has its origin in the Western Ghats of South India (Kerala, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu). They are also grown in Sub-Himalayan region of North Eastern India. Around the world, they are cultivated in Guatemala, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Tanzania, Nepal and Bhutan. Cardamom in south India is parrot green in color. Indian cardamom is known world-wide for its quality. It is exported to various countries. Large quantities of good grade cardamom are usually exported to other countries to meet the export norms.

In South India, the harvesting season starts from July to January, but sometimes it extends to February. The plants will grow to a height of 6-10 feet. The panicles grow very close to the ground and the pods are picked from them.

These plants start flowering only after 2 years of planting. The flowers then develop a fruit and when they ripe, they are ready to be picked. The pods are picked once in approximately 45 days during the harvesting season. After harvesting, they are washed, dried, cleaned and packed. Cardamom is usually stored as pods because the flavor will be lost if they are exposed or powered.

Cardamom is mainly classified into three types based on the color - Green, Brown and Black.

Green Cardamom

The green and bold cardamom obtained from South India is the best in the world. This is because the aroma is maintained for a long period. They are used in masala preparation, milk based products, tea, cakes, sweets and breads. It is also known as "Elaichi" in India.
