Small Cardamoms  , Elettaria cardamomum Maton, is often referred to as the ‘Queen of Spices’. Its pods are small with a light green colour. Black or large cardamom, Amomum subulatum, is recognised by larger pods of a dark brown colour. Guatemala and India are the main Cardamoms for export and import   producers worldwide.
