The Acai berry is rather less known - wrongly so! This purple superfruit has its origin in Brazil. It is often found in powder, frozen and fresh, as juice, puree and capsules. It promises anti-aging for skin and brain, as well as an energy-enriching effect.
The red, wrinkly berries are actually native to China and are called the queen of superfoods. They promise eternal beauty and with their high vitamin C content they provide a boost for the immune system.
They are eaten dried, in jam, as juice or as capsules.
The small dark purple berries originally come from North America, but since 2009 they have also been cultivated in domestic areas. Visually they are reminiscent of blueberries, but taste less sweet.
In Schwarmstedt you can get to know and taste the small berries during plantation tours, seminars and at the harvest festival.
