CINNAMON MYRTLE

Cinnamon Myrtle For Sale Mega TubeBotanical Name: Backhousia myrtifolia
Description

The leaves have a pleasant spicy cinnamon-like aroma and flavour. The attractive flowers are creamy coloured and star shaped, followed by star-like capsules. The cinnamon myrtle is well suited to the home garden. The tree is adaptable to a broad range of conditions and different soil types. Cinnamon myrtle is suitable for full-sun and semi-shade situations. The tree is tolerant of light frosts. Leaves can be harvested as sprigs for use in cooking. This is a specific selection for its flavouring qualities, and is the actual clonal variant that inspired the name “cinnamon myrtle” in the 1980s. It’s used in savoury recipes, deserts, confectionary and herbal teas. The main essential oil isolate in cinnamon myrtle is elemicin, which is also a significant flavouring component in common nutmeg. Cinnamon myrtle can also be used in floristry.
