Souari, Caryocar nuciferum, is a large, elegant tree from Panama and Northern South America that produces a coconut-sized fruit with four nuts inside, surrounded by edible flesh. The nuts are allegedly “warty,” with red, hard-shelled, kidney-shaped nuts. They are similar in texture to the Brazil nut, but with a more almond-like flavor, and are said to be oily and delicious. Unfortunately, they do not grow in abundance and are often grown and cut for their fine hardwood, so most of us will probably never experience a souari nut. If you do, please let me know what you think of them.
