This expansive nutmeg garden is the home and source of a variety of nutmeg products made by the company De La Grenade. As Grenada is famous worldwide for its spice exports, particularly nutmeg, the gardens here give visitors the chance to experience the heart of the “Isle of Spice.”
Learn about the historical, traditional and medicinal uses of spices and other local plants. The highlight of the experience is an aromatic walk through the herb and spice gardens, which spans over two acres. Walk over nutmeg shells, enjoying the smell of local fruit trees, flowering plants and of course—the nutmeg spice.
In addition to seeing many of the natural plants and flavor sources, visitors can sample De La Grenade’s many beverage concentrates, syrups, jams and house La Grenade liqueur. The processing area grants behind-the-scenes insight into how these products are created and then shipped all over the world. There are also various homegrown fruits and spices—all native to the area—for tasting and purchase.
De La Grenade is located in the suburb of St. Paul’s, bordering St. George’s to the east. It is open Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Admission is $5 USD.
