One of the fruits growing in the Amazon forest is the Cupuacu. Usually, a Cupuacu grows in the tropical rainforests of the Amazon basin. It is a tropical rainforest tree connected to cacao. Did you know that this is the national fruit of Brazil? It is a rich moisturizer that is full of skin-friendly fatty acids that improve the tone and texture of the skin. Cupuacu trees have brown bark, and the leaves range from 25–35 centimeters. As they mature, the leaves change from pink-tinted to green, and eventually, they begin bearing fruit. Usually, it ranges from 5–15 meters in height — the seed of the Cupuacu covered by a pulp that gives the Cupuaçu butter. The Cupuacu butter has a firm, but soft feel to it and a light texture. The scent is sweet and sour, similar to cocoa and chocolate.
