Cardamom Farming

Cardamom is pungent, sweet, & bitter in Rasa. It pacifies Vata & Kapha dosha imbalances. It is an excellent digestive as it reduces indigestion, a common issue for those seeking to balance their Kapha & Vata Doshas. The aromatic seeds are also widely used as a breath freshener.

Prana Kitchens sources Cardamom from Mr. Matthews George who has adopted entirely natural & bio-organic farming techniques to cultivate cardamom on his farm. He uses micro nutrients to enrich the soil & bio organisms that are natural predators for Thrips, a pest that causes lacerations on cardamom pods. Mr. Matthews adopts a holistic & long term perspective when it comes to farming & improving crop yield using techniques that improve water conservation & soil biodiversity on his farm.

Mr. Matthews George cultivates cardamom, ginger, and turmeric in Karunapuram, Kerala. After a 25-year tenure in banking, he changed course to traditional sustainable farming. He plants for biodiversity, efficiently manages bio-waste, conserves water, and uses natural fertilizers—techniques he shares with his community as part of the Shaashvat Center for Sustainable Living foundation to encourage their green living.
