Versatile plant, similar mix of Cinnamon, Clove & Nutmeg. Berries are ground and used to flavor meats, pickles and soups. The leaves which have a rich/strong aroma used as a rub to flavor meats, teas & other culinary uses.
Allspice trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with one plant but adding an additional Allspice plant will increase your crop!
I purchased my All Spice Tree about four years ago.
I wish I could sent a picture of it now.
It is about six feet tall and maybe two feet around. I have it in a pot which in years past I had in my garden,this past winter it stayed in a screen porch and it will remain there I can no longer move it.
So much watching it grow can not wait for fruit
