Australian Nutmeg or Native Nutmeg, Myristica insipida and Myristica globosa

  • The Australian Nutmegs can grow as small to large trees.

  • They produce velvet brown fruits, which open up to reveal a black seed covered in distinctive strippings of red flesh.

  • They are common in the Daintree region and there is a good example near the toilet block at Mossman Gorge carpark. They are found in various tropical forest types along the tropical portion of the east coast of Queensland, into the NT, New Guinea and up into many Pacific islands.
