Herbs & Spices at Bukit Timah Core

August 30, 2011

Herbs and spices are plant products used to add flavour or aroma to foods. Herbs are generally leaf material that is better used fresh than dried. Spices are mostly dried, non-leafy plant parts. This area of Singapore Botanic Gardens is devoted to growing various herbs and spices including ginger (Zingiber officinale), lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus), pepper (Piper nigrum), nutmeg (Myristica fragrans), clove (Syzygium aromaticum) and cinnamon (Cinamomum verum).
