We have fresh nutmeg seeds and seedlings for sale that can be sent all over Thailand or picked up at our Nong Khai location if you happen to be in Laos. We have different nutmeg plant sizes grown from seeds. Only fresh nutmeg seeds can germinate and it takes several years until they fruit.
The closed ripe fruits of the Thai and Lao nutmeg trees fall to the ground and open up within a few days.
When the nutmeg shells open up, you can see a red or white skin over the nut. This is called maze and can be dried and ground, then used as a spice similar to the ground nutmeg. Both, nutmeg and maze, are used in Thai and Lao cuisine.
The fresh nutmeg seeds have to be planted as soon as possible once the protective shell has opened up, they can only germinate if planted in the first 10 days after the shell has opened. Nutmeg seeds or seedlings are hard to find in the plant markets of Thailand and Laos, but can be ordered with us.
The seed is placed on top of the soil, just half covered, half on the surface. Then the nutmeg seed will first root, later shoot up. We can only mail nutmeg plants up to 1 m to your location in Thailand or Laos, for bigger plants inquire about delivery or visit our gardens in Pattaya and Nong Khai.
