Beautiful Nutmeg

I thought I had seen the most beautiful nutmeg until I found these at the market in Roseau, Dominica last week. The picture doesn’t do justice to how large they are, but the firey colour of the mace (the outer red portion) is fairly true.

One of my goals while here is to see a nutmeg tree. I’m trying to arrange a farm tour so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it happens.

  1. Those are amazing. I think that we saw a nutmeg tree at the botanical gardens in Hawaii. There were also Cinnamon, and allspice. It was rather interesting to see something in person, that normally dwells in my cupboard.

    Hope that you get to see your tree.
