Just How Many Kinds of Fruit Are Cultivated in Brazil?

cashewThe purpose of this blog is to explore the diversity of fruits which are cultivated and eaten in Brazil – one of the prime culinary delights of this enormous country. It’s a lot to explore, as the following list shows. On the Brazilian website Toda Fruta I found an alphabetical list of the commercially cultivated fruits of Brazil. It is in Portuguese only, but it provides evidence of the sheer number of fruits available to consumers and to cooking professionals here in Brazil. It’s impressive, and I wonder if any other country could compile a larger list.
