Cloves
Although the time and manner of introduction of cloves into Sri Lanka is not known, it is speculated that the Arabs or colonialists brought the crop to the island, since Sri Lanka was a major market for spices.

Cloves are the unopened flower buds of a tree in the Myrtaceae family. The evergreen tree is called Eugenia caryophyllus. The clove tree is of medium size and has a smooth bark. By distilling the flower buds, the leaves or even the branches remaining after the removal of the flower buds, clove oil is obtained.

Varieties
Whereas there has not been any identification of specific varieties, certain trees produce large sized clove buds. These are known as Bothal Karabu.

Growing Areas
Cultivation of cloves is largely practiced in the wet zones of the mid country.  Such areas include the districts of Matale, Kegale, and Kandy. However, growing of clove is also being considered in the low country.

Soils
The best soils for growing of the clove plant are the deep rich loams that have a high content of humus. The crop also thrives well in laterite soils.  Sandy soil does not favor the growth of clove. When selecting the land to be used in the cultivation of clove, a well drained land should be considered. A water logged land would largely inhibit the growth of this plant.

Climate
Clove thrives well in a humid tropical climate. The preferred elevation is from sea level to about 1000m. Annual temperature should be averaged at about 200 to 300C without any variations. Abundant rainfall of about 2000mm is also required. For good flowering, there is necessity for alternation of dry and moist seasons. Nonetheless, the clove crop is not resistant to drought.  It should also be noted that strong winds may damage the crop. Additionally, shade is required for the first two years of growth after which clove should be exposed to light.

Cultivation
Planting is through the use of seeds. These seeds are obtained from ripe fruits. Since viability of the seeds is lost within two days, their collection should be prompt. Polythene bags containing manure and soil are used for sowing of seeds in nurseries.  The seedlings are then transferred into the field after a period of about 20 months.  Adequate application of manure and fertilizer is also advisable.

Other than wilting of nursery plants, serious cases of pest and disease invasion have not been witnessed in Sri Lanka.

Harvesting
A change of the flower petals’ color to yellow pink indicates  the clove buds are ready for harvesting. Harvesting season is between December and April. In Sri Lanka, the yield of dried cloves is averaged at about 250kg per hectare.

Uses
Cloves are used in pharmaceutical, perfume industries and for food preparation.  Some western countries also use them as painkillers in dentistry. Skin disorders like pimples and acne can also be treated using clove oil because of its anti-bacterial and antifungal properties. Due to their strong smoky flavor, cloves are used as ingredients in various foods especially the western and eastern cuisines.

Pepper
Ceylon Black Pepper, commonly called “King of spices”, has dominated the international spice market for ages. Despite the fact that most pepper originated from South of India, a variety of wild pepper is native to Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon). Pepper comes from an evergreen climbing tree called Piper nigrum. The woody shrub belongs to the family piperaceae.

Supported by a network of aerial roots, the Pepper shrub grows to a height of about 10m.  However, a height of 4m is maintained by pruning. Flowers produced are densely spiked. Peppercorns are also produced from fruits that resemble berries. These contain single seeds.

Ceylon pepper is important in the world spice market due to its high piperine content, strong aroma and rich flavour. Pepper has two varieties named ‘white pepper’ and ‘black pepper’.

Black Pepper
Black pepper is produced by sun drying ripe peppercorns.

White Pepper
This type of pepper is produced by the removal of the outer covering membrane. This can be done before or after the process of drying in order to obtain the inner seed.

Growing Areas
The cultivation of pepper in Sri Lanka covers an area of about 32,000 hectares. Wet zones in the mid and low country form the majority growing areas.

Soils
Pepper thrives well in loamy soils that are well drained. These soils should contain organic matter .Clay soils interfere with root development as well as the process of moisture absorption. Moreover, water-logged soils are more vulnerable to diseases.

To enhance soil fertility, manure should be applied.

Climate
In terms of altitude, an elevation from sea level to a height of about 1,200m above sea level is preferred. Annual average rainfall should not be below 1,750mm. Irrigation can be applied to areas prone to drought. Abundant rainfall brings about flowering during the season of flowering.

The crop is able to tolerate 100-400ÂșC annual temperature. Cultivation should be practiced in the humid tropics with little variation in temperature for maximum yields.

Varieties
In Sri Lanka, there are several local varieties of pepper that produce high yields. These varieties have high resistance to diseases, bearing habits, and high pungency.

Commercial varieties of pepper such as Kuching from Malaysia and Panniyur from India recently introduced to Sri Lanka have also proved to be of great benefit to farmers.

Planting
Stem cuttings are usually used in planting. Trees from which these cuttings are obtained should be resistant to diseases, healthy, and productive. Moreover, the berries produced should be bold. In the nurseries, cuttings should be planted in polythene bags containing manure.

Harvesting
The harvesting of pepper in Sri Lanka is done during the Yala and Maha rains. This is contrary to what is practiced in other countries.  White pepper and black pepper are the commercial products that are prepared and graded.

Uses and Health Benefits
Due to its strong aroma and taste, pepper is mainly used for flavoring food.  Additionally, it is used in manufacturing perfumes. Pepper also has numerous health benefits. Widely known and medically proven health benefits include: weight loss, control of cholesterol in the body, treatment of arthritis, prevention of breast cancer, curing of heart diseases, and protection of the skin from infections.

Description 
Ground cardamom is very fine, almost like a powder. It is a common ingredient in Indian cooking. While cardamom is one of the most expensive spices by weight, only a little of its powder is needed to impart its flavour to a dish.

To make cardamom powder, first crack the pods and remove the seeds. Then grind them finely or coarsely. The skins are either discarded or mixed into tea leaves, to give a faint fragrance to the tea. When making slightly larger quantities of crushed cardamom in a spice grinder or mixer, some people like to crush it with the pods in order to ensure a better grind and to prevent the powder from caking. 

How to Select
• If making cardamom powder at home, choose the greener cardamoms as they have the best flavour and aroma.
• If buying readymade, choose a tightly-sealed package, and check the use-by date to ensure freshness. 
• Avoid old stocks, as ground cardamom tends to lose its flavour and aroma soon. 

Culinary Uses
• Cardamom powder is widely used in Indian sweet dishes, ice creams, milk specialities, and hot masala milk. 
• It adds flavour and aroma to many rice dishes, vegetables and other richly-flavoured dishes.
• It is used as a traditional flavouring in coffee and tea.

How to Store 
• Ground cardamom tends to lose its flavour and aroma soon as it loses its volatile oils.
• Hence, prepare in small quantities and store in an airtight jar in a cool, dry place. 
• Also, a small amount of it can be stored in a bottle for daily use and the rest can be kept in a refrigerator. 
• It is best used within three months. 

Health Benefits
• It stimulates the digestive system and reduces gas.
• Its expectorant action improves circulation to the lungs and thus considered good for asthma and bronchitis. 
• Can counteract excess acidity in the stomach.
• Stimulates appetite and cures halitosis (bad breath).
• An infusion made by boiling a couple of pounded cardamoms in a cup of water along with few mint leaves, relieves you from hiccups.
