The Spices Cultivation and Trade from Eshadama {WASC 2021}

The country of Eshadama has developed a reputation for the cultivation and development of spices. The high mountains of the seaside country created many biomes to be used for year-round cultivation. The farmers of Eshadama were the first to invent a greenhouse to consolidate some of the farms in higher mountain elevations. The lower and more desert elevations used the greenhouses to increase the humidity to accommodate some of the rarer breeds of plants.

As the reputation for Eshadama spices grew, more spices discovered around the world came to their shores and mountains. The industrious farmers and merchants worked together to find or create locations where the plants could be grown and harvested. These farming spots were prepared and sown with the imported plants. Harvesting barns and food processing buildings were built in the middle of the farms, ideally on a river with access to the shore. Many towns were established across the countrysides and within the mountain valleys. They formed around the farms, their buildings, and the people who came to work.

  Types of spices: peppers, sap seeds, barks, plants, etc. environments needed for each of the above  

Native Pepper Trees of Eshadama

Peppers: These were grown in the foothill canyons or mountain valleys where the temperatures were more moderate than the desert floor. Civil engineers build reservoirs and irrigation channels in the larger valleys to help farmers deliver water to the crops that required more water. These were not native to Eshadama, but they have thrived well.

Salt Flats of a Dead Sea: There is a large mountain basin within the country of Eshadama which has a dead lake. As there is no outlet from the lake to carry deposits away, the lake's salinity has increased until it no longer could support life. During severe droughts, the water level drops, leaving formations of salt around the edges. These salt deposits were harvested and purified for culinary purposes. One industrious salt harvester constructed a large wooden platform with shot walls and sealed with pitch. He flooded the platform until covered in multiple inches of concentrated saltwater. After waiting for the water to evaporate, he found salt crystals left behind. As he continued to experiment, he found that his water cleaning and dehydration methods lead to excellent and pure salt crystals.
