Avara

Avara (Avarra, Tukum, Awara, Wara, Awarra, Tucum, Tucumã-do-Pará). This palm tree is actively cultivated in the north of the South American continent in countries such as Brazil, Suriname, Guyana, Guiana. A tree of medium height (up to 15 meters) is noteworthy in that it is covered with thorns (both the trunk and leaves) and the fruits grow in bunches.

Oval fruits have a size close to a normal chicken egg, their color varies from reddish brown to orange (this is more typical). The pulp is quite juicy, aromatic, its taste is most often compared with apricot, although, in fact, there is little pulp in them, since most are occupied by the bone.

Of course, the fruit contains carbohydrates and proteins, but a particularly valuable component is fats, or rather oils with a high content of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids (for example, avara is rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9). And in the avatar there is a lot of vitamin A (about three times more than in carrots) and B2.

Actually, as an independent product in its raw form, avar is almost never used. Residents of the region where it is actively grown, prefer to eat steamed fruits as a side dish or make it look like pasta, which is used as the basis for other dishes. In addition, oil is extracted from the Avara (more from the seeds than from the pulp), which due to its composition has found application not only as regular palm oil, but also as a cosmetic product.
