Green Acres Orchard's Cloves
Historically in 1800's, Penang has been hailed as producing the finest cloves in the world. Our farm is in fact located on prime clove-growing land in Balik Pulau, where the initial clove trees were planted then by the British East India Company. Our clove trees are between 30-50+ years old, making them as tall as 20-30 feet high.
At Green Acres, our annual dried clove harvest is only 10kgs. Harvesting which occurs once or twice a year in the months of November, December or January, is a laborious, menial and time consuming exercise where the matured clove buds are hand-picked from the trees before they bloom, separated from their stems, leaves and fluff by hand and sun-dried naturally.
Quality of cloves is quite consistent from year to year, with buds that are large and plump containing very high concentration of aromatic oils resulting in a distinctively stronger scent and flavour.
