The smell of cardamom awakens memories of the spices from the fairytales of 1001 nights like no other spice. Just like described in the fairytale, the spice markets of Zanzibar are dominated by the smell of this fantastic product. It is less known that Cardamom is extracted from the seed of the cardamom perennial plant and that this plant only grows under very specific conditions. Cardamom needs humus-rich soil, hot and humid climate, shade and regular grooming to flourish. Zanzibar provides optimal conditions for this: 1001 Organic Cardamom is mainly cultivated in the shade of big spice trees. This results in an outstanding Cardamom from Zanzibar.
