The cinnamon tree grows in moist well-drained soils and rarely reaches more than 15 metres (49 feet) in height. The thick simple leaves have smooth margins and are usually oval; the veins are roughly parallel to each other. Young leaves are red and mature to a deep green. The small bisexual flowers are greenish to yellow and are borne in clusters. The fruit is a dark drupe.


Cinnamon contains 0.5 to 1 percent essential oil, the principal component of which is cinnamic aldehyde.

 

Harvest and processing
The grower harvests the main crop in the wet season, cutting the shoots close to the ground. In processing, the shoots are first scraped with a semicircular blade and then rubbed with a brass rod to loosen the bark, which is split with a knife and peeled. The peels are telescoped one into another, forming a quill about 107 cm (42 inches) long and filled with trimmings of the same quality bark to maintain a cylindrical shape. After four or five days of drying, the quills are rolled on a board to tighten the filling and then placed in subdued sunlight for further drying. Finally, they are bleached with sulfur dioxide and sorted into grades.


Cinnamomum zeylanicum (family Lauraceae), known as ‘Ceylon cinnamon’ or ‘true cinnamon’, grows as an ever-green tree native to Sri Lanka (earlier Ceylon), and India including other regions of tropical Indochina and Madagascar. This is one of the oldest traditional spice species used for culinary purposes in South Asian countries. Additionally, according to toponymical and historical evidence, C. zeylanicum has been used for medicinal purposes since the establishment of Aryan settlements in the Anuradhapura kingdom. Moreover, the indigenous species of Ceylon cinnamon has been used in the Ayurveda system of Sri Lanka. Ethnopharmacological studies show that C. zeylanicum has gained more importance in Ayurveda and folklore medicine as it can be used in concoctions and decoctions. The inner bark of C. zeylanicum is used for medicine preparation in flatulence control, indigestion and in flu-prevention in the Sri Lankan Ayurveda system. C. zeylanicum has also been found in various other folklore treatments against inflammation of eyes, dyspnoea, leucorrhoea, rheumatism, neuralgia, wounds, toothache and diabetes.
