Euterpe oleracea "Acai Super Berry”

 

The Euterpe oleracea palm, commonly known as the Açaí palm, originates from the rainforests of the Amazon basin in South America. It is native to countries such as Brazil, Peru, Colombia, and Venezuela. 

 

Euterpe oleracea is a naturally clumping palm that can reach heights close to 100 feet, with long slender trunks. The beautiful deep green elegantly drooping fronds of the E. oleracea are born from long skinny crown shafts. The fruit, commonly known as açaí or açaí berry, is a small, round, black-purple drupe.

 

Euterpe palms require a tropical climate with slightly acidic soil. Despite popular belief, this species of Euterpe is actually a bit more cold tolerant than most palm enthusiasts believe. It has survived, thrived, and produced seed outdoors in zone 10B for many years.

 

E. oleracea is now the world's main source of palm hearts replacing E. edulis. It is a more sustainable alternative to the solitary E. edulis as it produces many stems/trunks unlike E. edulis. When one of acai's stems is cut, more stems grow back on the same root system, which encourages fruiting on the remaining stems. Since its introduction to the world market in 2000, the açaí fruit has steadily gained attention for its remarkable antioxidant value, even higher, some studies show, than that of other antioxidant powerhouses such as blueberries, red grapes and pomegranates. Because of the açaí fruit’s potentially elite antioxidant capacity, studies are being done to test the berry’s anti-cancer potential. In one of the first studies undertaken at the University of Florida in 2006, researchers discovered that açaí berry extracts caused up to 86% of tested leukemia cells to self-destruct. As a well known antioxidant, anthocyanin-rich foods and fruits have been marketed as cancer preventative and anti-aging products. 

 

Finally, if all the berry and palm heart qualities of the "Acai Super Berry” palm tree wasn't enough, this beautiful palm is also often planted as an ornamental tree throughout the Amazon region.
