Since 1997 I have been getting pernambuco crops of two species: the most common "small leaf", and the type known as "orange leaf".   They come from the Brazilian states of Minas Gerais, Rio de Janeiro and Bahia.   In my ranch, in Saquarema (a small town in the state of Rio de Janeiro), I have two hectares of land destinated to replanting pernambuco trees and other noble species of the Atlantic Forest.   There, I also have an adult pernambuco tree of around 35 years old.   From that tree alone I get dozens of crops per year. Gradually, I'm expanding my plantation to other parts of the area.
