A pea-sized berry from the evergreen pimiento tree. The name "pimiento tree" has nothing to do with the red sweet pepper known as pimento which is used in stuffed olives, etc. Christopher Columbus discovered allspice in the Caribbean while he was seeking pepper. As he had never actually seen real pepper, he thought allspice was it. When Columbus brought it back to Spain, it got the name "pimienta," which is Spanish for pepper. The name allspice comes from the fact that the flavor tastes like a combination of nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves. Jamaica provides most of the world's supply, though allspice is native to the West Indies and South America.
