Product Description

(Pimenta dioica)
The pimento tree is indigenous to the Caribbean Islands. The berries it produces are called ‘allspice’ since it captures the flavours of cinnamon, pepper, clove and nutmeg and other spices. It was first identified in 1509 in Jamaica. The berries are used to make liquors and used in food preparation. The dried ground berries are a primary part of Jamaican jerk seasoning and are a major export item for Jamaica. We have ground the dried berries and packaged it to give you this unique taste of Jamaican all spice.
