Mace comes from the same tree as the better known spice - Nutmeg. Nutmeg isn't actually a nut, but the kernel of an apricot-like fruit. Mace is the second spice of this tree and is an aril or thin lacy covering of the nutmeg seed or fruit. The nutmeg tree is a large evergreen that grows up to 60 feet tall. The tree produces “fruit” starting in its seventh year and may continue through its 90th year.
The “fruits” are harvested using long poles with nets on the end and then the Mace is separated from the inner nutmeg seed.
