Description

Cardamon ginger is a leafy ginger-like plant that grows in clumps and makes an excellent low screen, it adds a tropical feel to any garden. While the seeds don't resemble true cardamon the leaves can be used in desserts, to add flavour when steaming rice or used to wrap fish. Leaves are also delicious when infused to make spiced tea's, infuse one cardamon leaf, two sticks of lemon grass and one chopped chilli for a winter warmer.

Cardamon Ginger

Kathy2's Edible Fruits

Mine is the non-podding variety. Lovely fragrant folliage. I use the leaves as a substitute for ginger in soups and teas. You just bruise the leaves, add them to the liquid and remove before serving. It's a more mild flavour but works well if there's no ginger on hand.


They love lots of water but equally will survive in drier situations. Very hardly.



Planted: 2008

Height 0.75 metres

Qty: 1

Pollination: No

Pest Control:

Spiders like to make webs in the middle of the folliage so when you put your hand down there to pick a leaf watch out!

great grower, have divided the plant. very hardy.  Fine in a heavy clay soil.


Few years on and this plant is close to feral make sure you contain it!  Thinking about replacing all plates in the house and using the leaves to save washing up!
