The hard brown seed from the nutmeg tree has a warm, spicy sweet flavour. The nutmeg tree is indigenous to Indonesia but is also grown in the Caribbean. The first harvest of nutmeg trees takes place 7-9 years after planting, and the trees reach their full potential after 20 years. At one time, nutmeg was one of the most valuable spices. In England, several hundred years ago, a few nutmeg nuts could be sold for enough money to enable financial independence for life.
