Delicious summer fruit

W.A.F. Hopper

The British named the Palmyrah fruit ice-apple. The tender fruit resembles ice. Scoop out the contents and drop it in a glass of tender coconut water. (As you know one is a gelatinuous solid endosperm and the other is a liquid endosperm). Keep it in the refrigerator for 15 to 20 minutes and have a delicious drink.

In May, palmyrah fruits are a common sight.

When the top portion of the fruit is cut off, you will find three sockets inside, sometimes two but rarely one. In Tamil it is called nungu.
