RE: allspice tree

Hello Marg,

Allspice is a 40 foot tropical tree so I am wondering how you would keep it alive in Canada unless you have a greenhouse. I do not know where you could buy a plant but it is easily grown from seed.

The only place I know of for purchasing seed is Tradewind Fruit in the US. The plant is botanically known as Pimenta dioica.

Here is a link that might be useful: Tradewind Fruit

Do you mean the Carolina Allspice shrub? If you do, it is available at Humber nurseries in Brampton or Sweetgrass Nurseries in southern ontario. Marg

Vineland Nursery sells it as well.
