Banda Islands


It is known to everyone that the nutmeg was originally available on the Banda islands. The quality and taste of this nutmeg is still unsurpassed and unique in its kind. This unique taste is partly due to the fact that the nutmegs still grow in their natural habitat. Due to the unique composition of the soil in combination with the climate, the countries where the nutmegs were later cultivated cannot measure up to this unique taste. It is not without reason that the Moluccas are called the “Spice Islands”.
