Cardomom Spices In Kerala

Come to Kerala and taste the Queen of Spices. Visit the cardamom gardens of Kerala on tours of the spice plantations of Kerala with Kerala Backwater.

Cardamom has been exported from India for ages. This exquisite spice is grown in the tropical rain forest plantations of Kerala and its green seeds have been chewed raw and added to food preparations, wines and sweets for its pleasant aroma, since ancient times.

Exported from the ports on Kerala's Malabar Coast, cardamom found its way to the banquet halls and bakeries of Europe, where it was valued for its preservative and aromatic qualities.

Called the "Queen of Spices" for its many uses, Cardamom from Kerala is treasured around the world even today. Varieties such as 'Alleppey Green Superior' are famous for their size, green color and aroma.

You can see Cardamom plants and seeds in the spice plantations of Kerala on Kerala tours with Kerala Backwater.

The botanical name of the cardamom plant is Elettaria cardamomum. The plant is an herb, which flourishes in tropical plantations in the Malabar Coast of Kerala. The fruit capsule that encloses the seeds of the Cardamom plant is dried and used as a spice.

Cardamom oil is also used in toothpaste, perfumes, food preparations and medicines. Cardamom is eaten as a breath freshener and is added to tea and coffee for aroma and its medicinal properties.
