Mace Spice (Javitri) is obtained from a species called Myristica which is a nutmeg tree. M argentia, M fatua and M malabarica are also trees that are cultivated for their nutmeg fruit. But these are inferior in comparison to their flavors and aromas obtained from M fragrans. Mace Spice (Javitri) is crimson red in color and appears like a thick thread. Mace Spice is extracted from the seed of nutmeg plant, dried in the sun before sold in the market.
