The Brazil nut grows in the  rain forests of Amazonia and is gathered by native people. The Brazil nut tree is enormous, reaching a height of 100 to 150 feet or more. It can also live a long life of 500 to 800 years. (The trees grow very slowly, taking as long as 10 to 30 years before producing nuts.) All Brazil nuts are wildcrafted, the tree can not be domesticated.

    Your Alive and Wildcrafted Organic Brazil Nuts are exactly as I expected and then some! They are the best Brazil Nuts ever! Yummy, crunchy, with an additional flavor that could only be from something that might be called “slow food in the wild”.
