The North Region is the largest region in Brazil. It comprises the states of Acre, Amapá, Amazonas, Pará, Rondônia, Roraima and Tocantins. Almost the entire region is covered by Amazon Rainforest, except the state of Tocantins, which has savanna-like vegetation (cerrado).
Cumaru, the scented tree!
Native to the Amazon, cumaru is an aromatic and medicinal tree that exudes a pleasant fragant.
The fruit is born from the flower of a tropical tree of the legume family. In Brazil it is known as the vanilla of the Amazon and internationally known as fava tonka.
Moist and sprinkled over desserts, or mixed with syrups, their seeds taste so special that they have earned the nickname "the most delicious ingredient you have ever heard of.”
