Allspice, also known as pimento and Jamaica pepper, is native to the West Indies and the Caribbean. In much of the world, allspice is called pimento because the Spanish mistook the fruit for black pepper, which the Spanish called pimienta. In fact, due to its finicky nature, it’s one of the few spices that are still exclusively grown in its native region.
Allspice takes its name from its aroma, which smells like a combination of spices, especially cinnamon, cloves, ginger and nutmeg. While often mistakenly believed to be a combination of different spices, this individual spice is a true natural phenomenon.
