Allspice, also known as “Pimenta dioica L.,” is a fruit typically cultivated in the warmer parts of the world, picked before ripening from the tropical evergreen Pimenta Dioica tree. Allspice is known to resemble a flavor between cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and pepper, and is primarily used in sweet and savory dishes. It is also used in pies and for baking, especially in holiday season foods.
