What to know about Nutmeg:

Did you know that nutmeg and mace grow together with the mace being the outer arils to the nutmeg seed itself?

Nutmeg is native to Indonesia and although many species are grown throughout the world, the best quality comes from the Myristica fragrans species.

Nutmeg is graded in the following way:

· Siauw or East Indian nutmeg, West Indian nutmeg: gray-brown, rounded oval, limed or unlimed seeds, 26 - 35 mm long, diameter 15 -24 mm

· Papua nutmeg: gray-brown, elongate oval, limed or unlimed seeds, up to 35 mm long, diameter 10 - 18 mm

· "shriveled" nutmeg: gray-brown, rounded oval, unlimed, highly wrinkled seed with internal cavities.

If nutmeg is limed, it is coated or soaked in a lime based solution to prevent against pest infestation.
