Did you know?  Buriti (Mauritia flexuosa) stands as one of the Amazon's largest trees, reaching impressive dimensions with a diameter ranging from 30 to 50 centimetres and a height of 20 to 35 meters. Growing in Igapós, or flooded areas along the banks of streams and rivers, this tree germinates in concentrations, forming extensive populations known as buritizais. Beyond its imposing stature, the Buriti tree bears nutritious fruit that holds significance for both the local people and the diverse animal life inhabiting the region. The proximity to water aids in seed dispersal, contributing to the establishment of thriving Buriti populations in these unique and vital ecosystems.

Suggested Storage: Stored at temperature <30°C in closed containers and protected from direct sunlight.
