Raw Palm Nut
Raw palm nut refers to the fruit of the oil palm tree, also known as Elaeis guineensis. The palm nut is a reddish-brown fruit that grows in clusters and is about the size of a plum. The fruit contains a hard shell that encloses a white kernel or nut, which is rich in oil and used in the production of palm oil.
Raw palm nuts are commonly harvested and processed to extract the oil, which is used in various food products, cosmetics, and industrial applications. The palm oil industry is a significant contributor to the economies of many tropical countries, particularly in Southeast Asia and West Africa.
Raw palm nuts are also a traditional food in some cultures, and the kernel or nut can be eaten raw or cooked. The flesh surrounding the kernel is also edible and is sometimes used in local cuisines.
