    Elleteria cardamom. Yes, this is the real cardamom.
    Cardamom has a strong, an intensely aromatic taste and fragrance. It is a principal ingredient in curry powders, and is used to flavor confectioneries, liqueurs, chewing gums, sausage, and as an ingredient in some perfumes. Foliage is reminiscent of many gingers or seedling palm trees.

    Use some in an apple pie or pastry. The green seed pods of the plant are dried and the seeds inside the pod are used in Indian and Asian cooking. Also used in northern European countries such as in the Finnish sweetbread pulla or the Scandinavian bread Julekake.

    Green cardamom is one of the most expensive spices by weight, but little is needed to impart the flavor. Cardamom is best stored in pod form because once the seeds are exposed or ground they quickly lose their flavor.

    Perennial that usually grows to a height of about 4-6 feet but much taller under very good conditions. Prefers constantly moist rich soil and ample heat and humidity. Requires shade or filtered shade.? Will usually flower and fruit under tropical conditions.

    Starter plants are shipped in 3" deep pots. We try to keep all of our plants between 3-8" in height with excellent root systems.
