After that, the Portuguese visited Banda Islands in the late 14th century and started trading it. Finally, the trade was taken over by the English who later introduced it to several other countries that include India, Sri Lanka, Penang, Singapore, and the West Indies.

Basic information about Nutmeg
Indonesian evergreen tree known as Nutmeg is the source of nutmeg spice. This spice is used in different types of beverages and desserts. In the modern world where many people are fond of savory dishes, nutmeg continues to be in great demand. The taste of Nutmeg is milder when compared with mace but is more delicate and sweeter. In the past it was exclusively exchanged in the barter system. Surprisingly, this valuable spice has also been the cause of wars in the past. It takes several weeks, almost six to eight weeks for nutmegs seeds to dry in the sun. With passage of time, the size of nutmeg shrinks. Rattling of the kernels in the shells gives the indication that the spice is ready. Then the nutmeg is separated from the outer layer and packed. There is very heavy demand for Nutmeg from Sri Lanka.
