|Pimenta racemosa Bay Rum Tree|
Only the leaves of pimenta racemosa can be used in cooking and teas. All other parts of the plant, including the small black berries surrounded by a lacy network of white flowers, are not edible and should not be ingested. Despite the name, the "rum" isn't drinkable ~ TheSpruce
Bay Rum is a slow growing, columnar type tree. Grown naturally, it seems to have a shape like a christmas tree. I'm not sure what we will be doing for the shape of the tree so for now it is just going to be listed with home grown herbs.
