A thousand or so years ago, travelling Vikings discovered it whilst on their travels in Constantinople and on the caravan routes. And they introduced it to Scandinavia where it remains popular.
In India, Cardamom was traditionally considered as a herb and was one of the ingredients in Ayurveda (the ancient Indian science of medicine and lifestyle) and traditional Chinese medicine.
It is believed that cultivation of cardamom began in the tropical and humid climate of the Western Ghats in India.
