Eugenia Caryophyllus

Gathering Place cloves are hand harvested by our Farmers co-op in Southern India where they grow around the periphies of the multi cropped food forests. They have a warm, aromatic and sweet flavor.

Cloves are the unopened pink flower buds of the evergreen clove tree. The buds are picked by hand when they are pink and dried until they turn brown in color. Gathering Place cloves are harvested in the current year. 

Cloves were one of the first globally traded spices in the world; highly prized by the Romans and the Chinese. Long before they were used to flavor apple pie, cloves were used to sweeten bad breath and settle upset stomachs. Clove is the active ingredient in many over the counter toothache remedies because of its anesthetic and antiseptic properties.
