The nut grows on walnut trees that are found growing wild in Western European countries such as Austria, Andorra, Belgium, Denmark, France, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Iceland, and Spain.
As well as in Asia Minor: Turkey, Israel Kuwait, Pakistan, Armenia, Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria, and Afghanistan, among others.

The standard or fragrant nutmeg, Myristica fragrans, is obtained from the ripe fruit of the muscatero or moscata tree belonging to the family Myristicaceae, whose origin is the Banda Islands (in the Moluccas, Indonesia).
The plant is perennial and grows up to 18 meters high, presenting abundant alternate branches with a great density of foliage.
The leaves are big, very fragrant, of dark green color, with oval form and marked nervure. They are presented alternately united by a short and thin peduncle from where they will be born, also the inflorescences.
The fruit of the muscatero has a thick outer shell with a heart shape, which opens when mature showing the inner nut.
This one presents a rough and compact aspect similar to the wood, with high resistance, of rounded or oval type, and a size of 20-30 mm of length by 15-18 of width that constitutes the spice known like nutmeg.
An adherent grid of rubbery texture protects the grain and fleshy appearance, orange-yellow to deep red, called mace.
