Areca Catechu (Whole Betel Nuts)

View Areca Catechu (Whole Betel Nuts) in more detail >>

The most traditional use of these nuts (seeds) is in the ritual chewing of the "betel-quid"* This habit is very widespread throughout Asia, India and the Pacific, making it one of the most popular seeds in the world. Generally the the betel-quid is a small morsel consisting of a quarter betel seed (crushed), a pinch of lime, spices like cardamom or nutmeg for flavor all wrapped in a betel leaf (Piper betle). On some Pacific Islands it is traditional for the men to also add tobacco into the package.

UNLIKE OUR OTHER SEEDS, THESE ARE NOT VIABLE!

WE DO NOT OFFER THESE FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION; THEY ARE SOLD AS BOTANICAL SPECIMENS ONLY!*A "quid" is the Asian equivalent of gum.

Betel Nut Crushed Seeds

View Betel Nut Crushed Seeds in more detail >>

These Betel Nut Seeds are crushed from our fresh, whole Betel Nuts. The Areca Catechu seed is one tough nut, so we offer them crushed as an alternative to crushing your own seeds. The oils are somewhat diminished in the crushed seeds, but they are still quite useful for a variety of things, including research, aromatherapy blends, and components for incense.
