About Mace

The bark is greyish black. The leaves are elliptic or oblong-lanceolate and leathery. The flowers, borne in umbel-like cymes, are creamy yellow and fragrant. The nutmeg fruit is similar in appearance to an apricot.

When fully mature it splits in two, exposing a crimson-colored edible pulp surrounding a single seed, the nutmeg.
