The Market is Ripe for Açaí: Euterpe oleracea’s Super fruit! Since its introduction to the world market in 2000, the açaí fruit has steadily gained attention for its remarkable antioxidant value, even higher, some studies show, than that of other antioxidant powerhouses such as blueberries, red grapes and pomegranates. These small, dark purple fruits are similar in appearance to blueberries. Because of the açaí fruit’s potentially elite antioxidant capacity, studies are being done to test the berry’s anti-cancer potential.

  your benefits in buying from

Species purity: All seeds are species pure, correctly identified and only come from cultivated plants if we are 100% sure that they are species pure (not hybridised).

Freshness: All seeds are completely fresh and viable. We take samples from all deliveries of our collectors, in order to test the freshness and germination rates. These are very rarely low (although in some palm seeds this is sadly unavoidable), occasionally acceptable, but mostly excellent. Germination rates of up to 100% have been reported by many customers. For more information read on...

Experience: With experience dating back to 1992, has become the world leader in palm seeds. On our product pages you'll find many examples of how our customers have successfully grown palms from seed.

Selection and availability: Make your order from a selection of 1000 varieties available immediately and a further 2500 seasonally available varieties on our database.

Secure ordering: The order process via our secure server protects your privacy and with data encoding makes your order as secure as possible. Read more...

Convenient payment: You can choose from the following methods of payment: credit card (Visa, Mastercard, AmEx), prior transfer or cheque.

Low delivery costs: For "small packets" the delivery cost is included in the price. For wholesale orders we only charge the costs actually incurred by us.

Worldwide delivery: We have delivered successfully to 178 countries, and we make every effort to send your seeds even to "difficult" countries.

Customer satisfaction: Customers who are not satisfied with the germination of their seeds will be reimbursed by us (except where due to obvious customer error). Hundreds of customer letters can testify to the quality of the seeds delivered and to our friendly service. Read more...

Fair Trade: We give our collectors at least 50% of what we earn from our sales. This way, we are helping not only the collectors in often very poor countries but also contributing to the survival of many palms in natural habitats often threatened by logging.
