A visit to the Spice Island would be incomplete without a visit to its famous spice plantations. Zanzibar and Pemba supply 7% of cloves in the world, which was grown in a non-commercial until 1818. Now the smell of export permeates the islands, especially during the harvest season between July and December. The clove is actually the bud of the clove tree, which grows to fifteen feet high and blooms with purple flowers. The spice is collected in baskets and left to dry in the sun for four to seven days. When the buds change color, they are classified, packed and loaded in the port of Zanzibar for export. The islands are also pushing the nutmeg, lemon, black pepper, cardamom, cinnamon, you can see in the spice plantations along with many exotic tropical fruits. The tour stops to see, feel and taste the tropical fruits and spices. It usually ends with the ginger tea in the afternoon. Visitors can also purchase spices and spice oils for great prices.
