The Clove is an evergreen tree that grows up to 12 meters, with large square leaves and sanguine flowers in terminal clusters. The buds are a pale colour and then become green, developing into a bright red when they become ready for collecting. The Cloves are harvested when they are 2 cm long, spreading the sepals and four unopened petals in the center form a ball. The fruit is a one seeded berry.
