The clove is a small to medium-sized, evergreen tree native to the small volcanic islands of the Moluccas archipelago, Indonesia. The clove has been known for a very long time in China (you had to bite into a clove when you spoke to the emperor) and in the Mediterranean basin. Imported to Europe in the Middle Ages, it was a terribly expensive spice. Its origin was initially hidden and, like cinnamon and nutmeg, it was not until Portuguese and then Dutch colonization that the spice was harvested and exported in significant quantities to Europe.
