Nutmeg is an excellent spice. But did you know that the Myristica fragrans not only produces the Nutmeg nut but also Mace? If you want to grow Nutmeg plants from seeds, you will need very fresh seeds. And those fresh seeds are covered with a red skin or protecting net which is called the Mace. Dried and ground that Mace is an equally powerful spice as the Nutmeg seed itself. Grow your own Nutmeg trees from fresh seeds or buy some seedlings from us within Thailand or Laos.
