Pimento Leaf

Size
Allspice comes from the unripe, dried berry of a small tree called  Pimento Officinalis  or  Pimento diocia . It's also known as pimento, Jamaica pepper, myrtle pepper, new spice, pimenta, and clove pepper.

Originally named "pimento", Spanish for pepper, by explorers in the 16th century due to its dark brown, wrinkled skin. The English renamed it allspice because it has hints of pepper, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, and juniper.
