Organic Allspice Whole:
Botanical Name: Pimenta dioica
Allspice is a spice made from the dried berries of the Pimenta dioica tree, which is native to the Caribbean, particularly Jamaica. Despite its name, allspice is not a blend of different spices but rather a single spice that has a flavor reminiscent of a combination of several spices, including cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
