Acre is home to 25% of the Brazilian nut and the second largest producer of this amazon fruit.

Castanha grows in tall trees in Acre and the nuts are collected by ‘extrativistas’, forest gatherers that go deep into the forest (castanheiras) to pick the fruits that fall naturally from the trees every year during the rainy season. Due to its natural origin and collection method the castanha produced in Acre preserves the forest while providing a very important income to collectors.

The state government and technical organizations are working with local collectors to improve sustainability and production.
