Cloves are the aromatic flower buds of a tree in the family Myrtaceae, Syzygium aromaticum.


Cloves are the rich, brown, dried, unopened flower buds of Syzygium aromaticum, an evergreen tree in the mytle family. The name comes from the French “clou” meaning nail. Cloves come from the Madagascar, Asia and cakes.


Archeologists have found cloves in a ceramic vessel in Syria, with evidence that dates the find to within a few years of 1721 BCE. Cloves were traded by Muslim sailors and merchants during the Middle Ages in the profitable Indian Ocean trade.
