Jungle peanuts are beautiful heirloom nuts, wild-crafted by the Shuar tribe of the Amazon. These amazing peanuts are quite likely the original ancestors to all the commercial nuts grown today. Beautiful to behold, they’re long and lean, with a deep chocolate-colored stripe. Subtle yet rich, aromatic, and earthy yet different from regular peanuts as wild strawberries are from bland, commercial ones. The peanut, while grown in tropical and subtropical regions throughout the world is native to the Western Hemisphere.
