About Açaí 2017-08-23T09:57:58+00:00

Euterpe oleracea is the scientific name of the açaí palm. Açaí palms are native to Brazil. It takes 4 to 6 years from planting before the açaí can be harvested from açaí palms.

The berries are harvested from broom-like bunches.

Each adult açaí stem produces 4-8 fruit bunches, which equates to 120kg of fruit per palm tree annually. Açaí berries last between 36 and 48 hours without refrigeration.

Açaí berries are stone fruits and hence have large pits. Only the outer skin, or pulp of the açaí berry can be eaten.

Pulping makes the açaí berry edible, and allows the fruit product to be frozen for freshness and export.
