What are Cloves?

Cloves are the dried flower buds of the evergreen tree that is native to the The Maluku Islands in Indonesia. The trees can grow up to 26-40 feet tall and begin flowering after six years. When these flower buds turn bright red, they are ready for harvesting. Mature trees can bear fruit for more than 80 years. Cloves have been used for thousands of years in traditional medicine.
