Annatto Lipstick Tree (bixa orellana)

Beautiful pink flowers give way to unreal odd looking fuzzy fruit that when ripe hold inside little hard red seeds, that when ground and used in culinary or cosmetic applications produces a brilliant deep reddish orange color referred to as Anatto. The tropics answer to Saffron. Prized for its dyes and medicinal properties, Bixa Orellana has been used by indigenous peoples for hundreds of years.
