Allspice (Pimenta officinalis)
Native to the West Indies, Allspice makes an excellent container plant. The tall, slender tree has a whitish-gray trunk and deep green flavorful leaves. Small white flowers appear in spring, and once the plant is mature, dark purple berries set fruit in summer. Dried allspice berries have the fragrance of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg rolled into one. In the fresh leaves, the clove flavor is reduced and the cinnamon and nutmeg flavors become dominant. Use the fresh leaves for a spicy flavor when cooking roasts or stews. They may also be added to potpourris or boiled in water to impart a spicy scent in the home. Special Note: Allspice plants are dioecious meaning there are distinct male and female plants. To produce allspice berries, it’s best to grow two or three plants.

  1. A tough plant with a nice fragrance Review by Sarah
    How do you rate this product?

    I really enjoy this plant as it is easy to grow and relatively tolerant of semi-forgetful watering. The leaves smell like allspice when rubbed so it is very welcome in my home. The only downside to this plant is they are male and female so to get fruit you'd need to have multiple plants. My plant has not yet bloomed though so I've no idea if it is male or female.

  2. 2nd time was the charm Review by Joy
    How do you rate this product?

    Ordered this plant a few years back. The first plant I received was damaged, Logee's sent a replacement right away. I still have this plant, which is a small tree that is very forgiving of the dry Minnesota winters indoors. This is a very nice plant whose fragrant leaves I boil in water to perfume my house.
