It is native to Arabia and Syria, But is also found in the Indian market. The Nutmeg cardamomum or the true Cardamomum majus (Elettaria cardamomum) made its appearance in the Bombay market in 1885. Up to that time, the only large cardamomums that were encountered were the Bengal or Ceylon kinds. It is referred to by Arabian physicians under the name Hil-Bawa.



It grows wild in the eastern Himalayas and cultivated in West Bengal, Assam, Sikkim and Nepal.

Calyx and corolla tube segments are sub-obtuse, shorter than the tube and the upper one is cuspidate. Lip is obovate-cuneate, emarginate, yellowish white and rather longer than the corolla-segments. Capsules are 2.5 cm long, irregularly obcordate, echinate, trilocular, dark red-brown in color, containing several aromatic seeds in each cell and held together by a viscous sugary pulp. The fruit is anterio-posteriorly flattened, having 15-20 irregular, dentate-undulate wings which extend from the apex to downward for two-thirds of its length. There are three well-known cultivated varieties in Sikkim.
