 Mauritia flexuosa
Family: Arecaceae / Palmae
Moriche Palm, Canangucho
Origin: South America
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterPalm or palm-likeEdible

Moriche palm fruit is edible, has a high vitamin C content, and used to make juice, jam, ice cream, and a fermented "wine".

This dioecious species grows slowly, and can be mixed with many other tree and crop species as long as it is not under shade. It tolerates some flooding, and will mature in about ten to fifteen years. Several mature male palms should be kept in the field to help maintain good fruit production from the females.
