Their outer capsules are usually feather-like and hide the spicy black seeds inside. The original home of the spice may have been Sri Lanka in the 1200s A.D. Ethiopia also produces the crop in great measure supplemented by regional producers, such as Tanzania.
We source Ethiopia cardamom, whose Amharic term is Korarima from the southern spice-growing region.
