Gouyave Nutmeg Station Tours

2 Reviews
If Grenada is known for being the “Isle of Spice,” then Gouyave should be known as “nutmeg village” for its role as the main producer of the island’s most famous spice. Located on the west side of the island, Gouyave is a Grenadine fishing village, and its three-story Gouyave Nutmeg Station churns out 3 million pounds of the exported spice each year.

The Nutmeg Station gives visitors the opportunity to see, smell and taste nutmeg while learning about its many uses. See the nutmeg fruit in its raw form, and then watch and learn how nutmeg is picked and processed, sorted by hand and packed to ship worldwide. The nutmeg fruit is soaked in the Gouyave Nutmeg Pool, which allows for seed separation from the pod, which is then dried for six to eight weeks and sorted for size and quality. The station also makes local jute bags of nutmeg stenciled with any words of your choice. There are tours given daily.
