Informações Gerais:
Attalea colenda is a palm endemic to the coasts of Colombia and Ecuador. It produces high yields of fruits with an oil-rich endosperm and its use in pastures or in agroforestry systems with other crops is very promising. This is chemically similar to coconut and Oil palm oil (Lauric oil). Production of the palm is not restricted in rainforest habits. One hectare of A. colenda may produce between 0.35 and 3.2 tons of oil per year, an amount comparable to the production of the African oil palm. Attalea colenda is considered superior to the African oil palm because it will also produce well under dry conditions, and is expected to be the most important palm for palm oil production. Seeds can be eaten. A useful and very beautiful ornamental palm.
