The shelling of the Brazil nut is a natural process and cannot be replaced by any other kind of shelling. Artificial shelling cannot be done. The shell of the Brazil nut is made of hard wood which is quite thick and measures approximately 10 to 12 mm. Inside the shell of the Brazil nut, there are many seeds which are in a triangular form and there are about 10 to 20 nuts in it. The shape of the Brazil nut is in an oval shape and is usually the size of the palm of a man's hand. The Brazil nut is considered to be one of the largest nuts in the world. The weight of a Brazil nut can go up to 2 kilograms.

As the name suggests, Brazil nuts are mainly grown in the country of Brazil and other neighbouring countries of South America and are widely consumed all over the world.
