Acrocomia aculeata is a species of palm native to tropical regions of the Americas , from southern Mexico and the Caribbean south to Paraguay and northern Argentina.

Petioles of the leaves are also covered with spines. The flowers are small, produced on a large branched inflorescence 1. The fruit is a yellowish-green drupe 2. The inside of the seed, also called endosperm , is a dry white filling that has a vaguely sweet taste like coconut when eaten.

These nuts, which are so hard as to be difficult to break with a heavy hammer, are crushed to a pulp by the powerful beak of this macaw.

The plants inhabit a wide variety of climates and situations; in Paraguay , for example, where it is ubiquitous, it is called the coco paraguayo Paraguayan coconut , as it is much less common in the rest of the world. It has been suggested that grugru nuts, which come in mass numbers from each tree, can be used in the manufacture of biodiesel. The grugru nut, while very hard, can be sliced into thin circles to be sanded and worn as rings. The trunk of the palm can also be 'milked' to yield a fermented alcoholic beverage known as coyol wine.
