Mr Abraham guides for around one hour around his property explaining and telling histories about his many plants, spices and fruits with care and love. You can see that he dos this cause he loves to teach and explain. It is a must!

We were guided through parts of their great garden by Justin, who exceptionally well explained every plant species there were, as well as give tasters etc! Very informative, and interesting too just to see the masses of different plants they grow!

Abraham’s spice garden is the best place I visited in Kerala. I have always be curious to learn about how the spices I use are grown, and there simply isn’t a more knowledgeable man for the job than Abraham. We tasted all the spices and leaves as we went around, ate fresh jackfruit, papaya and many other things. He also convinced us to try a very hot chilli, which incapacitated me and my friend for 10 minutes, but he quickly fed us cinnamon leaves which helped with their sweet flavour.

As you drive around the mountains of Kerala you will see many spice gardens, but this is the one I was reccomended and it was even better than I could imagine! Visit and you won’t regret it!

The photo is Abraham next to the roasting ovens where he slow bakes the cardamom pods.

We did not book anything in advance. You can just show up and go on a tour through the spice garden. We took an autorickshaw from Kumily town (80 rupees) to get here but on our way back we took the local bus (10 rupees per person). It takes about 5-10 minutes depending on traffic/type of transportation.

When we arrived, Abraham the owner of the spice garden was sitting outside of his house and welcomed us to his property. The tour was very informal and we could ask as many questions as we wanted. I loved how passionate Abraham is about his work and his goal to just wanting to educate people about spices rather than this being a commercialised attraction. I was in awe of his garden, where different types of spices grow right next to each other. I must say I am quite jealous of Abraham for having this garden - just walking through it is already a relaxing experience. Add to this the invaluable knowledge of Abraham about his spices and you got yourself the best experience you could wish for.

One of the best part of our tour in Thekkady.. This is a 63 years old Spice Garden which has appeared in BBC documentary - “ Around the World in 80 Gardens”.. The owner himself has given a very detailed tour and explained all different kinds of spice trees there.. The ones which are rarest of the rare.. A must do in Your Thekkady trip

The place is close to Forest Canopy Resort where we stayed in Thekkady, The owner is a very well mannered person and has a good background on farming and spice cultivation . You will get a guide who will explain details of each spice tree / plant and also numerous other trees and plants. There is option to buy many spices and other items.

Visited the place on 2 October on suggestion of a friend and then reading positive reviews on tripadvisor.

Entrance doesn't look impressive and may put you off initially but the spice garden is big on inside ....the owner Mr Justin and family are very nice...we were provided good knowledge of the spices especially varieties of coffee and Tulsi by the host ...also able to see plantation of cardamom , black pepper, red banana and some unique plants as well

They believe in organic farming as we were informed by utilising multifarming techniques i.e. growing diff plants together

We also were given genuine spices at genuine rates...highly recommended

We had a great time walking around the spice garden. The guide was really friendly and showed us all the different plants in the garden.

Really enjoyed our time here and well worth a visit. Good value for money.

Don’t let the entrance put you off - we originally thought it was closed.
