Allspice, also Jamaica pepper, sometimes pimento, is the unripe berry of the Pimienta dioica tree; which is dried, ground, and used as a seasoning. Its name comes from its flavor, which is reminiscent of many spices, including cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg, with a peppery flavor.

It is the primary spice in the Jamaican Jerk Spice blend.
