Where Do Cloves Come From?

Video transcription

Hi I'm Trina Sims of Green Star Herbs in Austin, Texas. And I'm here to tell you where cloves come from. Cloves or Syzygium aromaticum are the aromatic dried flower beds of a tree in the myrtle family. Cloves are native to Indonesia and used as a spice all over the world. The name derives from the French word for nail, clou because the buds dried look like all slightly bent up nails. Cloves are harvested primarily in Indonesia also Madagascar, Zanzibar, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. And somewhat in India. I hope this information on where cloves come from has been interesting. Thank you.
