Achiote

Growing in the rainforest we also find the Achiote Tree (Bixa orellana), sometimes known as the "Lipstick Tree".  From the fruits come the seeds from which Annatto (also called "bixin") is extracted.  Although the fruit is not edible, the orange-red pulp that covers the seeds is extracted by stirring the seeds in water to produce a yellow to orange food colouring.

The colouring paste or powder is called "annatto, achiote, roucou, or bijol".  It is also sometimes used as a flavouring.  Do you enjoy eating Cheddar cheese?    butter?  snack foods?  then you've probably eaten foods coloured with annatto!

Central and South American natives also used the seeds to make body paint and lipstick.  This is where the name "Lipstick Tree" comes from.

Found within the rainforest is the Luffa.  The Luffa or Loofah is a tropical and subtropical vine that is a part of the Cucumber (Cucurbitaceae) family.  

Not only do they look the same, but Luffa Sponge Gourds grow very much like a cucumber.  After pollination, yellow blooms on green vines begin to grow into an elongated, soft edible fruit.  This will later harden into a fiber-filled seed pod.  If one is growing the gourd to use as a bath or kitchen sponge, when the skin is brown, it is ready to be peeled and harvested.

Scenery & Landscapes


 

 

 

 

“There is a serene
and settled majesty
to woodland scenery
that enters into 
the soul and delights
and elevates it,
and fills it with
noble inclinations.”  

~ Washington Irving ~

 

 

 

 

“I went to the woods
because I wished
to live deliberately,
to front only
t he essential facts
of life and see 
if I could not learn
what it had to teach,
and not,
when I came to die,
discover that I 
had not lived.”  

~ Henry David 
Thoreau ~

 

 

 

 

“Keep your faith
in all beautiful things.
In the sun 
when it is hidden.
In the spring 
when it is gone.” 

 
~ Roy Rolfe 
Gilson ~
