Kattappana (Kerala) [India], August 21: Kerala, often referred to as the “Spice Garden of India“, holds a treasured legacy of producing some of the world’s most sought-after spices. Among them, Green Cardamom stands as a crown jewel, celebrated for its aromatic richness and culinary versatility. The enchanting plantation land of Kerala, particularly in the Idukki District, is blessed with the perfect climate and fertile soil that perfectly nurtures these delicate green pods. In recent times, Green Cardamom has taken the business world by storm, both for its exquisite flavor profile and its remarkable market dynamics.
