Ceylon Pak

Ceylon Pak is one of the rare species in the Areca genus found in the humid tropical regions of Kerala and Southeast Asia. 


Several species of Areca nuts, known for their bitter and tangy taste, raw or dried, are routinely used for chewing, especially in combination with the leaves of betel, and dried leaves of tobacco.

    1. Ceylon Pak is a rare variety. The widely available variety is Betel nut. Betel nuts are a bit different in appearance. You can see them in my previous posts here and here.

  12. They are so pretty, Shiju....too bad they aren't sweet, rather than bitter. I'd prefer them that way.
