                  This spice was imported from China to Egypt as early as 2000 B.C.E.

      Later, it was commonly used on funeral pyres in Rome. In 65 C.E., Emperor Nero is said to have burned a year’s supply of cinnamon at his wife’s funeral.

Cassia Cinnamon

Cinnamon Bark Tree

  Cassia Cinnamon tree, Cinnamomum aromaticum.  

        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.

Cinnamon has pointed black fruits from which cinnamon oil is extracted.


      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.

Cinnamomum aromaticum


            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 a spice.

         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.

          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 zeylanicum.

       Cassia 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 10–15 m tall, with grayish bark and hard elongated leaves that are 10–15 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 is extracted.

              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.

            We accept online payments only through PayPal, Cash payments are only acceptable for in-person payments and cash-on-delivery (COD). Cash payment can not be sent through the mail.

      Please only one Paypal payment. SO THE COMBINED SHIPPING RULE WILL CAN BE USED. Multiple paypal payments are NOT eligible for discounts.

        We will ship once a week - ON or BEFORE WEDNESDAYS, because of the special stamps needed to ship plants and cuttings to you.  This can only be done at the Dept. of Agriculture.  If payments are not met before that MONDAY, your items will be shipped the following week and lose the combined discount opportunity.

        We will combine shipping for auctions won on the same week paid with same paypal payment.

   This policy is good for all items bought and paid for in the week ending MONDAY.

Payment must be received within 7 days of the auction ending.

Combined Discounts Won Auctions

     For 2-3 winning auctions, the combined discount is 10% of the total Shipping and Handling charges. For 4-7 winning auctions, the combined discount is 20% of the total Shipping and Handling charges. For 7+ winning auctions, the combined discount is 30% of the total Shipping and Handling charges.

         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 can’t 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.

Fresh Highest Quality

         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.
