These raw, organic Wild Jungle Peanuts are the only non-toxic peanuts in the world (aflatoxin-free). They have a beauty and flavor far surpassing anything you'd ever find in mass-grown commercial peanuts. Enjoy the pure, rare, rich, aromatic and earthy flavor. Their skin features an astonishing almost purple-colored striation.These unique organic, heirloom Wild Jungle Peanuts are cultivated in communities of the Achuar Indians who are indigenous to the Amazon basin in Southeast Ecuador.
These ancient, heirloom nuts are planted by hand, in pristine, untouched conditions deep in the Amazon Jungle. They are hand harvested. As the Achuar 's territory contains no roads, these nuts are carried along trails by foot to a city where they can be shipped. The Achuar have been less affected by outside influences and have experienced less cultural changes, retaining more of what we might consider a "traditional" lifestyle. The cultivation and selling of these wild jungle peanuts and other organic certified products represents the Achuar Indian's only income.
