The Tagua Nut

The Tagua Nut

"vegetable ivory"
Deep in the Amazon Rainforest grows a special tree, the Tagua or Ivory Palm. It produces an extraordinary fruit, the Tagua nut, which has been used to make buttons, jewelry, and carved objects since the 19th century.

Enjoy this Tagua product knowing that its purchase supports the employment of 35,000 native people. The income received from Tagua crops is a strong incentive to maintain the trees. This helps stabilize the Rainforest and, ultimately, world environments.

A Tagua's yearly harvest equals the ivory from 1 female elephant!
