Coming from the evergreen Nutmeg tree native to the ‘spice islands’ - Moluccas, nutmeg is the seed kernel found inside the fruit. Now grown in the West Indies, it was once under the sole monopoly of Arabian spice exporters. They exported this in-demand spice to Europe until 1512,when Vasco de Gama laid claim to the Moluccan islands for the Portuguese.The British were so impressed by the exceptional flavour of this spice that they took over the spice islands by late 18th century. From then on nutmeg gained raging popularity in Europe, with plantations expanding to the East Indian islands and the Carribean.
