The Açaí Palm is a tall, slender fruit palm tree native to Brazil, Trinidad, and other parts of northern South America. They are cultivated for heart of palm but most popularly known for their small, round, anti-oxidant rich fruit; the superfood Açaí berry.

Our Acai plants are grown from seed and capable of producing fruit within 3-5 years, or when it reaches 8-10 ft tall.
