Of the many imposing trees in the rainforest, Brazil walnut (Bertholletia excelsa) is one of the most intriguing. The tree is best grown in the U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zone 11 and above. UU.
Growing your own Brazil nuts will require a little patience, and while difficult, it's a rewarding endeavor. First, you need to collect some Brazil nuts. If you take them from the bag of mixed shelled nuts mentioned above, you will not be able to spread them. Those nuts have been boiled as part of their processing.
The boil will kill the seed, leaving it powerless. You can grow chestnuts in the United States if you live in Florida or in areas with a similar climate. The harvest of trees from Brazil that grow naturally has prevented deforestation for this reason in many areas of the Amazon. After the walnuts have finished soaking, plant them 2 to 3 inches in the sand-moss mixture and close the container.
In several countries in South America, Brazil nuts are called Brazil nuts or Brazil nuts (Spanish). The items you'll need for this project are raw macadamia nuts (shelled), three to four 12-inch deep grow pots, peat, vermiculite, a heating mat, and lots of water. But Brazil nuts don't fit that at all; they're actually considered seeds, since they come in large baseball-sized pods in groups of 10 to 24. While some specialty grocery stores sell Brazil nuts, you can't beat the convenience of having them shipped to your door. Brazil walnut wood is prized for its quality in carpentry, flooring and heavy construction.
Brazil walnut trees are tropical evergreen trees that grow naturally in countries such as Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia and Peru along the banks of rivers such as the Rio Negro and the Amazon. A quantity of 100 g (3+1⁄2 oz) (75% of a cup) of Brazil nuts contains a rich content of thiamine (54% DV), vitamin E (38% DV), magnesium (106% DV), phosphorus (104% DV), manganese (57% DV) and zinc (43% DV). This, along with the process of harvesting, shelling and shipping Brazil nuts, makes their cost a little higher. In Brazil, these seeds are called “Pará chestnuts” or “Pará chestnuts”, after a state in northern Brazil where trees grow abundantly.
Not surprisingly, Brazil nuts didn't really take off until the Spanish and Portuguese made better forays into the jungle. The items you'll need for this project include raw Brazil nuts (in shell), a large container, three or four large jars, potting soil, elastic bands, and cheesecloth for each jar. Once you've planted the sprouted nuts, cover the tops of the jars with cheesecloth and an elastic band to keep the fabric in place.
