I made these Nungu Popsicle last year!Yes, my drafts still has a lot of pospicles from last summer. Well,the summer was unbearable and the kids developed heat rashes. One of the best ways to beat the heat is to drink tender coconut water /eat Nungu.
Nungu is known by the names – Asian Palmyra Palm,Toddy palm, Sugar Palm, Ice Apple and Cambodian Palm. Borassus flabellifer is its Botanical name.
The fruits are found in clusters and are black in color. When the top portion is cut off, 3 soft translucent, jelly like fruits are reviled. This is scooped out and the hard outer portion is removed the jelly like fruit is consumed.
If the outer part[brown color] is not mature, it can be consumed without removing it. Here is a close up pic….
