Aguaje - Moriche Palm Fruit

Aguaje

Moriche Palm Fruit

Guest
Updated

Moriche palm trees are native to the tropical Amazon regions of Peru. The palm fruits, which are called Aguaje in Peru, have a reddish-purple-brown tough skin with a texture similar to a pineapple. Beneath the skin is a thin layer of a firm, yellowish-orange pulp which covers a large seed.

Agauje is eaten raw, in desserts or used to make juices, jams, ice-cream and an alcoholic beverage.

The pulp of aguajes is extremely rich in essential fatty acids and has a high Vitamin a and C content. The oil extracted from the Moriche Palm fruit is called Buriti. In the local medicine, it's used to treat burns.
