Pepko Kerala nutmeg, derived from the seeds of the Myristica fragrans tree, is a prized spice known for its warm, sweet, and slightly nutty flavor. Grown in the tropical climate of Kerala, this spice is harvested with care, ensuring the highest quality and aromatic intensity. Both the seed (nutmeg) and the aril (mace) are valuable components of this versatile spice.
