FRUITS & VEGETABLE WEEK: Myristica fragrans
Common Eng.name: Nutmeg
Marathi name: Jayphal

-It is highly medicinal.  We give this to young children who cry in the night.


– I think Jayphal and Javitri belong to the same plant.


-Your pictures really explain how the two spices are arranged. They look very artistic!

Konkan, May 2014 :: Myristica fragrans :: 12JUN2014 :: ARK-26 : 3 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (3).

Requesting to please validate the ID (Myristica fragrans) of this cultivated tree captured in a small village near the Konkan coast, Devgad, Maharashtra in May 2014.


Yes I think you are right.


   

In a Spice Garden in Ponda area of Goa on 30/9/09. Stated to be Javitri/ Jaiphal being coming from its fruit by the guide. 

Forwarding again for confirmation of its Botanical name-  Myristica fragrans or M. malabarica. 
As per Wikipedia link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nutmeg, it should be M. malabarica. Pl. confirm. 
“The most important species commercially is the Common or Fragrant Nutmeg Myristica fragrans, native to the Banda Islands of Indonesia; it is also grown in Penang Island in Malaysia and the Caribbean, especially in Grenada. It also grows in Kerala, a state in the south part of India. Other species include Papuan Nutmeg M. argentea from New Guinea, and Bombay Nutmeg M. malabarica from India, called Jaiphal in Hindi; both are used as adulterants of M. fragrans products.”

This is Myristica fragrans

Confirmation / correction will be much appreciated.

The tree is 100 %  Myristica fragrans for me. I have seen this tree here in the Ayurvedic garden  and photographed  the tree  with fruits. But havn’t seen the beautiful flowers. Convey my thanks & appreciation  to … for uploading the superb images 


the fruits look like Myristica fragrans seen by me in Kerala.

Not seen the flowers though. Thanks for showing.
