How to Use
Use these raw shea nuts as a prop in product photography, for your in-store displays, or simply as a talking point.
The first step in creating shea butter is gathering the fallen shea fruit and nuts. Shea trees grow wild in northern Ghana and cover vast areas of the Savannah. Sometimes a single shea tree can take up to fifty years before they are mature enough to be harvested for the first time, making them a precious commodity.
Shea fruit season is late April to early June. Delicious, tasty and sweet, it is a treat for young and old, with a seed that can be processed into shea butter. Fruit that falls from the trees is picked, then cleaned, dried, husked and packed in sacks for transport to the Baraka Shea Butter processing center. Only about 15% of the fallen shea fruit/seeds are picked for shea butter production. The rest are left to germinate and grow into new shea trees.
