Nutmeg with shell

Nutmeg with shell is mainly purchased by savvy consumers who wish to hold the spice for an extended period and only crack the shell just before use.

DRUERA markets Nutmeg with shell in 4 oz and 16 oz pack sizes which could be purchased online by clicking the arrow pointing down next to the pack size.

Nutmeg is grown in the hill country of central Ceylon Nutmeg (Myristica fragrans) is a native of Moluccas in east Indonesia and is reported to have been introduced to Sri Lanka in the early nineteenth century. It's a spreading evergreen tree 15-20 m high.

Flowers are generally unisexual. Bisexual flowers also occur. Occasional trees with male and female flowers are seen in plantations. Fruits are fleshy drupes, that turn yellow when ripe and split into two halves exposing a purplish brown shiny seed surrounded by a net-like red aril called Mace.

The nutmeg tree yields two spices, Nutmeg which is the kernel of the seed, and mace, which is the net-like crimson-coloured leathery outgrowth (aril) covering the shell of the seed Our Spices are grown in the wild and as such could be considered organic. They are free of any pesticides and herbicides.

Right product, wrong label

I ordered 1lb Nutmeg in a Shell and it arrived sooner than I expected. Unfortunately, the label states Nutmeg without Shell. It looks like it is in a shell but, to be certain I emailed Druera. They never responded to my inquiry so I only give them 4 stars.
