You do not get to see the Açaí berry out of the Amazon forest as it is a highly perishable berry and each Açaí berry contains up to 90% seed and only ~10% skin which is where all the nutrients are hence the freshest and most nutritional way to have it is to turn the skin into frozen pulp in the shortest time after picking them to retain the maximum freshness and nutrients.
The Açaí Palm, Euterpe Oleracea, from the Palm family, grows up to 25m in height. The average mature palm tree has 4-8 well-developed stems from a single seed and root system
