Caption: Sorting nutmeg. Women using baskets and tubs of water to separate seeds of the nutmeg plant (Myristica fragrans). The nutmeg seeds are placed into the tub of water. The lower- grade quality seeds float, while the better ones sink. The women scoop the nuts out of the water and place them into the appropriate basket on their left. Photographed in Grenville, Grenada.
