The introduction of nutmeg (Myristica fragrans Houtt.) and cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum J.Presl) to America



The introduction of nutmeg (Myristica fragrans Houtt.) and cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum J.Presl) to America



Acta Botanica Venezuelica 28(1): 155-160



This paper documents that the first specimens of the economically important nutmeg (Myristica fragrans) tree did not reach the New World until 1773, while the equally valuable cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum (Cinnamomum zeylanicum)) tree had been transferred to a Caribbean island by 1762.
