Mr Abraham is a charming man. A brief but interesting walk explaining source and uses of the many plants and flowers. Opportunity to buy some spices at the end.

Abraham gave us a very informative tour of his plantation in French (he speaks many languages including English, French and Spanish). He has many varieties of spices and cultivates it for decades.

I went to Abraham's Spice Garden. This beautiful organic Abraham's Spice Garden holds sessions on spice cultivation, organic farming, Ayurvedic techniques and practices, and the nutritional and medicinal values of various spices. It is great place to go.

A visit to a Spice Garden is an excellent way to learn about different spices and how they are used. Cardamom, pepper, turmeric and ginger are the main spices cultivated in this area.
