Abstract

Cinnamon is a very useful tree spice, and every part of the tree is used for different
purposes like culinary, pharmaceutical and perfumery. It is native to Sri Lanka and in
India it is cultivated in lower elevations of Western Ghats in Kerala, Tamil Nadu and
Karnataka. The area, production and productivity in our country is very low and it is
mainly due to the non adoption of improved crop management and post harvest
handling technologies, decline in area under cultivation and incidence of pest and
diseases. Hence, the positive developments made in various aspects of crop
improvements, production, protection and post harvest handling techniques are
reviewed here

Keywords

Cinnamon Bark spice Flavour Frangance.
