The height of Brazil nut tree is about 150 feet and their trunk is about 8 feet when talking about the diameter. The Brazil tree has a long life and it can live for about 500 years. This tree is large and so the branches and the leaves of this tree are very high. Unlike other trees you can touch the branches and leaves of Brazil tree. The tree is so beautifully large that is rainy days it acts like a canopy and the travelers of old times were found to rest under the tree of Brazil nut. The leaves of this tree are beautiful and waxy. They have a yellow orchid at the end of the leaf. When the flower is pollinated the fruit produced in called Brazil nut. One of the largest trees of Brazil nut which grows in the tropical jungle is about 165 ft tall and it bears fruit after 20 years and the tree has a life of 5-800 years. The kind and quality of tree depends on the ecological system and reproduction of the tree. Because the real fruit takes a long time to grow, many researchers and scientist tried the plantation but is was never successful so all the Brazil nuts throughout the world are natural.
The process of pollination is very different. There are some special species of bees which can pollinate the flowers of Brazil nuts, the main reason why scientist couldn’t use the plantation method over Brazil nut trees. The process which involves the production of these nuts is strange and somehow unknown too. Like mentioned above that only a specific type of bee specia can pollinate these flowers, there is a strange kind of specie which can chew these hard fruit pod and disperse these seeds.
The most interesting fact about the Brazil nut is that it’s the seed of the tree it grows on. There are pods with the size of man’s hand and one pod contains around 30 seeds. The collectors of Brazil nuts have to wait till the pod drops on the ground because the tree is very large. But the pod is so hard that if it falls on your head, it can kill you. Not throughout the world but in the countries mentioned above where Brazil nuts are grown in abundance, Brazil nut processing is among the largest and most developed industry. The industry thus provides job opportunities to many people and also offers alternative to their jobs. Bedemco is the world’s largest supplier of Brazil nuts and the only supplier which offers new types and kinds of Brazil nuts. They also offer products made up of Brazil nuts and export them throughout the world.
