Nutmeg is referred to nutmeg tree seed. It’s the only fruit that is the source of two different spices (nutmeg and mace). The nutmeg seed is enclosed in a spotty yellow, edible fruit, the near size and shape of a small peach. The fruit splits in half to reveal a net-like, bright red cover over the seed. This is the aril which is collected, dried and sold as mace. Under the aril is a dark shiny nut-like pit, and inside that is the oval shaped seed which is the nutmeg.
