What is allspice?

About the ingredient allspice. Including 894 recipes with allspice, nutrition data, and where to find it.



Allspice is a small scrubby tree, very similar to the Bay Laurel in size and form. It can be grown outdoors in the tropics and subtropics with normal garden soil and watering. Smaller plants can be destroyed by frost, although larger plants are more tolerant.

It adapts well to container culture and can be kept as a houseplant or in a greenhouse. The plant is dioecious, meaning plants are either male or female and hence male and female plants must be kept in proximity in order to allow fruits to develop.
