My allspice tree is looking nice, although it does seem to be a slow grower. I still haven't found out all the information that I need on it, the biggest being do I need a second for pollination. Some articles say yes, others seem to say no. And if I do need a male and female tree, which do I have?
The leaves do smell really nice, however. They have the allspice scent and may be used in cooking just like the berries themselves.
It is funny that, when I tell people that I have an allspice tree, they are surprised as they thought that allspice was a blend of spices!
I also have started some paddle cactus in the open space of the container. Love pickled cactus so the goal is to get enough paddles to make a batch.
