Closely related to the Acai Palm, the fruits are eaten fresh and can be used much like the acai, the Jucara is commonly used for its edible heart which is eaten steamed. An emergent rainforest palm, it is found across large areas of south-eastern Brazil, Ecuador, Argentina, and Paraguay. A tall, slim, solitary palm to 8m high, with an attractive crown of drooping leaves, and a coloured crownshaft. Requires a warm sheltered, and moist position that is well drained. Likes filtered sun when young, but can take full sun as it matures.
Other Names: juçara, jussara, açaí-do-sul, palmiteiro, Heart-of-Palm, Acai
