Bracatinga is a tree from the genus Mimosa. It is one of the fastest-growing trees in the world, reaching a height of 15 meters (49ft) tall in only 3 years. Bracatingas are native to the southern regions of Brazil, where they grow in colder humid weather in mixed Araucaria moist forests. In the cold months in the south, this tree is the only species that supplies pollen and nectar in abundance and is therefore very useful for beekeeping.
Because they are highly melliferous, they are widely visited by bees of the genus Apis sp and Trigona sp, which pollinate their flowers in search of honey. The honey of the Bracatinga flower is rare and of a bitter taste, but incredibly medicinal. It acts on the stomach, liver, and intestines. It helps to balance the rate of sugar in the blood. Diabetics and hypoglycemics can use it.
