Cardamom is a spice made from the seeds of several plants in the genera Elettaria and Amomum in the family Zingiberacea.


Cardamom originally came from wild plants located in the Western Ghats in Southern India. The plants grew in such abundance in this region that this area became known as Cardamom Hills.
