The Acai Palm, also known as the Assai Palm, is a species of palm trees native to Brazil and other regions of South and Central America.
In assai palm (Euterpe oleracea), fruit weight per bunch, number of bunches, and number of rachilles per bunch were determinant factors in the variation of fruit production of half-sib progenies, and can be used in the indirect selection of genotypes (TEIXEIRA et al., 2012).
