The seeds are used as a piquant spice, not unlike peppercorns. Aframomum angustifolium is widespread throughout tropical Africa and on the islands of the western Indian Ocean.
Moist shady places in hill savannah. Common in moist areas in forest undergrowth, in riverine vegetation or at swamp edges at elevations of 1,000 - 1,700 metres in Tanzania.
