CINNAMON TREE

Cinnamon leaf flushBotanical 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.

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.
