Nepal Cardamom

Nepal Cardamom or Black Cardamom is quite common in the tea gardens. It seems that Nepal is one of the biggest if not the biggest producer of this type of cardamom. October - November is harvest time. After the pods are collected they are roasted. I guess most of it ends up in India. Images of cardamom being roasted by a tea farmer in Dhankuta.
