Sacha inchi seeds

Sacha inchi seeds: A gift from the Amazon


Sacha inchi is a plant native to the Amazon rainforest in Peru. It is characterized by its star-shaped, green leaves, towering height (it can often reach two meters or higher), white flowers and edible seeds. These seeds, which look like brown nuts and are also called sacha peanuts, Inca peanuts or mountain peanuts, have been cultivated by Peru's indigenous population for centuries, although they are just as likely to be used in oil production today.
