CARNAUBA PALM

The carnauba palm is native to tropical areas of South America. It has an edible root, small edible black fruit (olive sized), sugar is produced from the sap, and a wax is collected from the lower surfaces of its leaves. This carnauba wax is used in carbon paper, polishes, plastics, floor wax, lubricants and as a food additive.

The pith is also used as a cork substitute, fiber from the leaves is used to make rope, and the wood is used for building and to produce excellent veneers. 

A truly useful plant.
