Cinnamomum verum

Cinnamon Sticks, Powder and Flowers By Simon A. Eugster [GFDL,CC BY-SA 3.0] (Photo Credits)

Highly ornamental tree and the source of cinnamon spice. The spice itself is the bark that is peeled from the branches after 2 years. Scrape the bark leave for a day so that the inner bark curls into cinnamon sticks as it dries. The base of the leaf can be chewed for a cinnamon flavour. Cinnamon is a very elegant and useful aromatic, much kinder to the palate than the other spice trees.

Gorgeous, beautiful, stunning and delightfully aromatic.  All my experiments in making cinnamon stick have resulted in piles of scraps of bark.  I think I need a field trip to Sri Lanka, just ot be sure.

Marginal where I am but it has grown enough to produce a reasonable spice. Needs extra care in non tropical areas to even survive much less flourish. Keep as warm as possible, mulch and water well and cross your fingers.
