Sailors from Sri Lanka would have stopped off at Madagascar to replenish their stores after the long journey across the Indian Ocean, before negotiating the Cape of Good Hope. This cinnamon is certainly recogniseable as Ceylon cinnamon. It has the same citrusy scent. The bark is a lot thicker, but only because it is grown and harvested differently. The cultivation of cinnamon in Madagascar fizzled out in recent decades because of over-harvesting; entire plants were deracinated so that even the roots could be peeled. Only after the export of cinnamon from Madagascar was forbidden, thus making it uneconomical to produce cinnamon, did the cinnamon grow back. The ban has recently been lifted and the farmers have learnt sustainable farming methods so there is every chance that cinnamon farming will recover in Madagascar and one day, perhaps, compete with indigenous Ceylon cinnamon.
