The most flavorful variety of annatto. Grown in the harsh, dry conditions of Yucatan.

Yucatan annatto is as remarkable for its mild and penetrating flavor and for its vivid color. It is used in cochonita pibil, a traditional Yucatan dish of braised pork. As with all annatto seeds, they can infuse oil with deep color and aroma. Well suited to accompany rice dishes.
