Botanical Aspects

The Brazil nut, derived from the Bertholletia excelsa tree, is an edible seed in the Amazon region. The tree can reach great heights and produces pods containing several nuts inside. With hard shells and edible kernels, the Brazil nut is valued for its distinctive flavor and nutritional benefits. At the same time, the tree plays a crucial role in preserving the biodiversity of the Amazon.

Fun Facts

Archaeobotanical research reveals that the Brazil nut tree, a vital species for the Amazon, has been cultivated in the region by indigenous populations for over 11,000 years, indicating an ancestral interaction between Paleo-Indians and this essential natural resource.

From the early 19th century, there were efforts by the English, mainly through the Royal Botanic Gardens in London, to domesticate the Brazil nut tree. However, attempts to adapt Bertholletia excelsa (the scientific name of the Brazil nut tree) outside of its natural habitat were unsuccessful, unlike what happened with the rubber tree. Brazilian scientists and agronomists successfully adapted the Brazil nut tree to cultivation, contrasting with foreign attempts. During the 1970s, deforestation in the Amazon led Brazil to lose its position as the largest producer of Brazil nuts to Bolivia.

The Brazil nut emerged as a valuable economic alternative for the Amazon in the 1920s and 1930s, particularly after the decline of the rubber industry, surpassing the importance of rubber as the leading regional product. With the end of the rubber boom, which profoundly affected the Amazonian economy, the commercialization of Brazil nuts played a crucial role in sustaining exports from the states of Pará and Amazonas. Pará stood out in Brazil nut production, especially in the area known as the Brazil nut polygon, located in the Marabá region in the southeast of the state. At that time, Brazil was the leading exporter of this product to Europe, where it had been appreciated since the 17th century.

Initially known as "Brazil nut" due to the state's role as the leading exporter, the terminology changed to "Brazil nut" in the 1950s at the initiative of the Brazilian government. Despite this, the denomination is contested by other producing countries in the Amazon region, who propose the term "Amazon nut" as a more inclusive and representative designation.
