There is an old planterâ€™s saying â€“ â€˜cardamom adds spice to your years and years to your lifeâ€™. While this may just be folklore, of one thing there is no doubt; cardamom from Idukki, Kerala adds its unique distinct flavour and aroma to the finest gourmet food, in cuisines across the globe. Itâ€™s the worldâ€™s third most expensive spice and is universally acknowledged as the queen of spices.
SPRIG Green Cardamom traces its origins to select estates in the verdant rainforests of the Western Ghats in Idukki. These handpicked extra large pods pack an intense flavour with their bold, sweet-floral and peppery notes characteristic of Idukki Cardamom.Â Cardamom is a carefully cultivated spice that needs shade and a lot of water.

No wonder this region has been the home of the most precious cardamom for hundreds of years! Today, SPRIG ensures that this regal spice finds a place in every connoisseurâ€™s kitchen.
