CINNAMON TREE

Cinnamon Sticks, Powder and FlowersBy Simon A. Eugster GFDL, CC BY-SA 3.0 (Photo Credits)
Botanical Name: Cinnamomum verum
Description

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.

Cinnamon

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. | David White - Newcastle, NSW 28-May-2006

Cinnamon Tree

Planted mine in summer where it gets semi-sun to full sun, then it became semi-shade, mainly skylight in winter time. Place a plastic sheet barrier to protect if from the cold wind. planted some chamomile as a ground cover for it. So far so good. | Chrissie Eckersley - Kahibah, NSW 21-Aug-2010

I planted one of thses a few years ago, as a novelty. Even though it is designated Low Frost Tolerance, it has survived the black frost of a couple of years ago with no problems. It has beautiful red new growth, and one day I might harvest the cinnamon.

Cinnamon Tree 1/10

Carol3's Edible Fruits
Update: 247 days 11hrs

Comments: -

Very disappointed to lose this plant. The young plant wilted shortly after transplanting to its permanent position in the garden. Although I watered it in well, it did not recover from wilting. Consequetly, I continued to thoroughly water it, erected a shadecloth barrier around it to protect it from what appeared to be scorched spots on its leaves.  

Too late, I identified the problem as a Phytophthera pathogen. No way to save a plant from this disease.  Although I would dearly love to grow another Cinnamom, I am hesitant to try again due to the cost of the plant and all likelihood that another would also succumb to the disease, even if I planted it in another section of the garden. My many attempts to grow Mango, and a few other suseptible plants, make me very wary as this pathogen lies dormant in soil until the right conditions (here, namely the wet season) present themselves for it to arise once again.

Comments: - Georgeous rose, pink colour of new foliage. Smells amazing; especially when you crush up the foliage. Does really well in semi-shade and lots of humidity. Rose coloured foliage will turn lime green once matured.

Comments: - I got it, realised there was no way it was going to grow on the SA block.  I took it home and put it in a pot, maybe I overkilled it with love.  But it just up and died.

Cinnamomum Verum  

I am growing this to put the leaves in my coffee . OMG , what a difference it makes to the coffee . No bitterness . Very very slow growing here . Red loam / clay soil . Tons of water . Whole trees mulched and spread around the base . Occasional fertiliser but kept away from the base . OMG its slow growing . Looks like it could die from root rot anytime . Needs humid wet climate but allowed to dry a bit at the base . It is on a north east facing slope so gets a lot of sun hours . How it will do in full sun as i grows is anyones guess .  Afaik from google lol the plants roots need to be in a lot of green mulched matter to give a better flavour . I also use a bag of well rotted cow manure from Bunnings $3.5 per bag . Never dig the mulch into the soil just spread it on top but keep it away from the trunk . I use a wire cage to keep the dog away and to keep the mulch away from the trunk . Lets the top soil near the trunk dry out a bit as well . It seems to me that the hotter the day the more water it needs . I mean lots more . It is a Graphium magnet here in the subtropics .
