Allspice is the dried fruit of the P. dioica plant. The fruits are picked when green and unripe and are traditionally dried in the sun. When dry, they are brown and resemble large, brown, smooth peppercorns. The whole fruits have a longer shelf life than the powdered product, and produce a more aromatic product when freshly ground before use.
 It has a pungent and aromatic bouquet, like a combination of nutmeg, clove , ginger and cinnamon.
The flavor is a warm and sweetly pungent like the combination described above with peppery overtones. 

Because of its eugenol content, allspice has attributes similar to clove. It is a digestive and carminative.

 Allspice is widely considered to be lucky and are used by many people for the purpose of bringing 
Good Fortune in Business, Money Matters, and Games of Chance
