The nutmeg tree is native to the Moluccas archipelago on the island of Banda. It was then introduced to Celebes, Java and Sumatra, Malaysia on the island of Penang, Bengal, the West Indies and Brazil as well as Mauritius and Reunion where Pierre Poivre established it.
The nut is at the heart of a fruit that looks like an apricot, the envelope of the nut, yellow or red in color is called Macis.
The nut is grated to be used.
