A study on cardamom production and exports: Queen of spices
Cardamom plants grow wild in parts of the monsoon forests of the Western Ghats in southern India. This area has become known as the Cardamom Hills, and until just 200 years ago wild plants from these hills provided most of the world's supply of cardamom. Indian cardamom is slightly smaller, but more aromatic. Though it is more popularly used as a herbal spice, which is added in dishes to provide a strong aroma and flavor but in Ayurveda it is considered to be a very useful and effective medicine. Cardamom is said to be good for kidneys, as this spice promotes urination, lowers blood pressure and also removes accumulated calcium and urea in the kidneys, along with other toxins. Erratic climate and its uneven distribution is a major problem to this crop growers.
