Pepper - Black

$29.00 ($29.00-$39.00 choose a size)

Cultivated for the fruit which is dried and used as a spice and seasoning. The fruits are dark red when fully ripe. Immature fruits can be picked as green pepper, black pepper is the fruit dried with the skin on and white pepper is the dried seed only. Black pepper is the worlds most widely traded spice.

Cinnamon Tree

$27.00 ($27.00-$59.00 choose a size)

Highly ornamental tree and the source of cinnamon spice. The beautiful red new growth is highly distinctive. The spice itself is the inner bark that is peeled from the branches after 2 years. Scrape the outer bark, then peel the inner bark, leave for a day so that the inner bark curls into cinnamon sticks as it dries. They are distinctive in the many layered quill they produce that, when crushed, will shard rather than snap. Cinnamon is a very elegant and useful aromatic, much kinder to the palate than other spices. It imparts a distinctively sweet flavour when used. The leaves themselves are higher in clove oil than cinnamaldehyde, the active component of the sweet aromatic scent of cinnamon. Weed Warning: Can be invasive in tropical areas

Cinnamon - Cassia

Medicinal and food flavouring plant for my garden, tried to grow the other variety (cinnamon tree) but it didn't do so well. This has just taken off. Be aware this can not be eaten in large quantities ( ie every day) as it has a different chemical structure to the cinnamon tree also offered by Daleys fruit trees. Great antimicrobial.

Cinnamon - Cassia

Supposed to be tougher than cinnamon proper. So we're hedging our bets with both types. So far true cinnamon looks better.
