    Product Description

    Nutmeg and mace are both derived from the seed of the fruit from Myristica fragrans, an evergreen tree native to Indonesia.

    The oval-shaped seeds have a sweet, spicy flavor. When ripe, the fruit splits in half, exposing the netlike membrane or aril, known as the mace. The mace closely enwraps a dark brown, brittle shell inside of which is the single, glossy brown, oily seed, the nutmeg.
