Cardamom, sometimes spelt CARDAMON, is the common name for a spice consisting of whole or ground dried seeds from a herbaceous perennial of the ginger family.

The reddish brown seeds have a warm, slightly pungent, and highly aromatic flavor somewhat reminiscent of camphor.

The cardamom seeds are a popular seasoning in Oriental dishes, particularly curries. the seeds come from the green fruit of the cardamom plant prior to maturity. Native to the moist forests of southern India, cardamom fruit may be collected from wild plants; but most is cultivated in India, Sri Lanka, and Guatemala.

The name cardamom is sometimes applied to other similar spices of the ginger family used in cuisines of Africa and Asia
