Plant Science: What is Cardamom?

What is cardamom? One who has a love of spices has no difficulty describing these little green pods. They exude a fragrance reminiscent of the Orient. They are strong-tasting in contrast to their small size. In India, this spice is considered the queen of spices, not just because it's one of the most expensive spices, but because it has been used there for over 2000 years.

The best Elettaria cardamomum grows only in shady places of the forest, where it is very humid. The perennial, high-growing plant is similar to bamboo and belongs to the family of ginger plants. It grows to a height of 3-4 meters. Its flowers enclose oval pods with three chambers filled with brown grains. They pick the fruits before they burst in the period from September to December. Then they are dried for about four days under the sun. These dried pods are hard and green.
