Cinnamon Bark Tree
Cinnamomum aromaticum is the source of cinnamon that we commonly buy. Cinnamon has
been a favorite spice since biblical times, and since then has evolved many uses. It has
played key roles in nutrition, medicine, religion, and the botanical economy. Cinnamon is
a major product sold in the U.S. in any given grocery store. It can be bought in its pure
form as cinnamon sticks, spice, or oil.
Cassia cinnamon (Cinnamomum aromaticum) is a close relative to cinnamon (C.
verum, C. zeylanicum), Saigon cinnamon (C. loureiroi, also
known as "Vietnamese cinnamon"), camphor laurel (C. camphora),
malabathrum (C. tamala), and Indonesian cinnamon (C. burmannii). As with these species, the dried bark of cassia is used as
Cassia cinnamon's flavor is less delicate than that of true cinnamon; for this reason, the
less expensive cassia is sometimes called "bastard cinnamon".
Whole branches and small trees are harvested for cassia bark, unlike the small shoots used
in the production of cinnamon; this gives cassia bark a much thicker and rougher texture
than that of true cinnamon.
Various varieties of
cinnamon exist, only two of which are commercially popular: plain cinnamon -Cinnamomum
zeylanicum, and Cassia cinnamon - Cinnamomum aromaticum, native to Burma and
South China (not to be confused the Cassia plant). The spice cinnamon is obtained from the
young bark of the branches.
The two differ in appearance in the fact that the bark of cinnamon is thin and
yellowish-brown, and the bark of Cassia is thicker and gray in color.
Cinnamomum zeylanicum possesses the stronger aroma, but to deduce the form of the
plant from the appearance of the spice is practically impossible.
Cinnamon spice comes primarily from the Sri Lankan cinnamon known as Cinnamomum
zeylanicum. Obtained from this tree by drying the central part of the bark, which is
then sold in stick or powdered form.
The cinnamon oil is extracted from the waste products of drying and the pointed black
fruits of this tree. This oil is used for medicinal purposes or flavoring.

Most of the cinnamon spice sold as cinnamon in the United States and Canada (where true
cinnamon is still generally unknown) is actually cassia. In some cases, cassia is labeled
"Chinese cinnamon" to distinguish it from the more expensive Cinnamomum
bark is cinnamon flavored and also used for a variety of medicinal purposes. Leaves also
have some medicinal oil qualities. The trunk is smooth and whitish bark of this tree has a
very strong cinnamon scent. The aromatic bark of this tree is ground to make commercial
cinnamon, the leaves are used to make perfumes, and the dried, unripe fruits are used in
cooking, similar to cloves.
Cinnamon Bark Tree
The Cassia Cinnamon tree is an
attractive small tree, up to to 1015 m tall, with grayish bark and hard elongated
leaves that are 1015 cm long and have a decidedly reddish color when young.
Mature foliage is shiny, light green leaves which can
be four to seven inches long. New leaves emerge pale to pinkish.
The flowers are inconspicuous, and the panicles of the yellowish flowers are usually
longer than the leaves. These panicles bear pointed black fruits from which cinnamon oil
The cinnamon sticks are made from the bark of the tree and are rolled naturally when the
bark is sun-dried.
The tree grows best
in deep, well-drained, moist soils.

As each order is packed and prepared separately you will pay the quoted S/H charges
individually per item. If you buy the same species in that item it does calculate out the
discount (i.e.: additional item $3.61). My stores' combined shipping is built in for same
items rather than a varied selection. Includes postage, USDA certification and inspection,
proper packing and delivery to Airport for prompt delivery. I cant really change any
of these. If you want one of this and one of that, it gets hard to discount much as each
different species requires it's own prep & packing, then at USDA each has to be
unwrapped and inspected then repacked. USDA requires me to clean and prepare every last
piece before we drive them to the Inspection Station on the other side of the island. It
takes my wife and I, a day to pack items and get ready to ship. The whole next day we
drive around the island and get inspected (2-3 hours), then drive to the Airport Post
Office to drop off. It takes the same work with the same type item if you can understand.

LIVE PLANTS ARE PERISHABLE.

When you order a plant we assume you are prepared to care for it.
Please have potting media and a container prepared for your plant
before it arrives. Shipping can be stressful on a plant, and any
mistakes that you make upon arrival can stress the plant further,
which is not good. Proper care is critical upon arrival. It is your
responsibility to know how to care for the plant.
Not every plant that I order through
the mail survives, and I am aware of that and accept the risk when I
order. This is the risk that you as the buyer accept, because there
is no way to know what kind of conditions it will endure in the trip
to your door. My responsibility ends when a live plant is delivered
to your door. Live arrival is guaranteed, eternal survival is up to

Seller warrants seed to be of the variety and quantity advertised.
Safe delivery is guaranteed and seeds lost or damaged during shipment will be replaced at
seller's expense. Claims must be made within 7 days of shipment. All other replacements,
refunds, returns and exchanges will be made at the sole discretion of the seller.
Seed is a live product which depends on many important related grower skills such
as proper planting time, seed depth, type of soil, irrigation, proper use of fertilizers,
weed controls, fungicides, insecticides, disease free soil, and reasonable weather
conditions during the growing period. Germination is affected by such factors as
temperature, moisture content, light intensity and contamination of planting media. These
factors are totally out of the seller's control and are the buyer's responsibility and
risk. Consequentially, the seller cannot unconditionally guarantee seed to perform
properly regardless of conditions or the buyer's methods or mistakes.
