Elettaria cardamomum – Cardamom (plant)
Out of stock
Elettaria cardamomum is the well known spice plant, does it need an introduction? Our plants were grown from fresh seed imported directly from India through a friend. The fresh seeds smell amazing! This is not the ‘fake Cardamom’ (Alpinia calcarata or Cardamom Ginger) sold for many years in Australia as real Cardamom. Alpinia calcarata has amazing smelling leaves useful for cooking and tea but does not produce cardamom seeds.
Care and Cultivation Likes a part shade position with rich humus or sandy/humus soil, well drained and lots of root space. Waiting to see cold hardiness this winter and will report back then.
