Zingiberaceae is one of the family under the order Zingiberales. Amomum is one of the largest genus under family Zingiberaceae. Although Amomum is one of the largest genus, this genus is poorly known among ginger. The identification of this species is still confusing although the plant already been long utilized since there are a lot of species under genus Amomum and herbarium specimen are also incomplete. Thus, this project studied the morphological and anatomical characteristics of fruit from the selected Amomum species in Malaysia and use the data for species determination. The sampling areas were taken from various localities in Malaysia and 12 species of Amomum were examined. The method is the whole observation of the sample and all the morphology and anatomy of the fruit were observed. To ease this process, the Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and USB Digital Microscope were used. Most of Amomum fruit has the common morphology characteristics such as fruit shape in oval, capsule types of fruits with persistent calyx, presence of bracts and the arrangement in agglutinate.
