Shell Ginger (Alpinia sp.)
This specimen belongs to a species of Alpinia, a genus in the ginger family. Alpinia occur throughout the warmer parts of Asia and usually grow in forests. The round, hairy fruit shown here comes from a plant similar to galangal (Alpinia galanga), a species that is rare outside Southeast Asia. Like a cardamom pod it contains three rows of fragrant seeds.
