Anadenanthera peregrina (Yopo)

Seeds, Whole from Brazil (SKU 3032)

Whole Yopo seeds (Anadenantherera peregrina), ethically wildharvested, from Brazil.

Anadenanthera, from the genus Leguminosae (Pea family), is a beautiful delicate fern-leaved tree with spreading branches, white puff-ball flowers and dark leather brown pods with 10-15 mm diameter black pip seeds. It resembles the Lead Tree (Leucaena leucocephala), the Albizia (Albizia julibrissin)  and many other legume trees, but it has the most delicate doubly pinnately-compound Mimosa leaves. Plants need full sunlight and prefer well-drained soil. Let the soil dry completely between watering. Cebil (Anadenanthera colubrina) can handle some short term freezing conditions. Yopo (Anadenanthera peregrina) is a species that occurs naturally and cultivated in the open plains or llanos region of the Orinoco basin of Colombia and Venezuela, in savannahs and light forests in British Guiana and in Brazil in the open grasslands.
