The Acai Palm, also known as the Assai Palm, is a species of palm trees native to Brazil and other regions of South and Central America. The Acai Palm bears small, dark purple berries that each contain one large seed. The small berries have been prized for generations by the regions' tribes for the healing and energizing sustenance that they provide both as an edible fruit and nutritive oil.
