Food Chain 29 - Soapwood Nuts

Sustainable use of nuts of the soapwood tree in the Alto Mayo region of Peru Jorge Elliot of ITDG Latin America in Peru describes the utilisation of the nuts from an Amazonian tree (Caryocar glabrum). The tree is KnOwn as temashnum by local Indians and piquirana in Portuguese. Now it is usually referred to as ‘wild almond’ although it is in no way related to, or should be confused with, the true almond (Prunus amygdalus).
