The Pili Nut
Discover the Pili nut, a fruit of the Pili tree that thrives in the volcanic regions of Bicol in the Philippines.

The Natural Way to Pili Nut
Even in the Philippines where the pili nut is grown and harvested you would be hard pressed to find the pili nut being sold in stores still in their shells. Usually you get them out of their shells roasted, salted or candied. Why? Because pili nuts are one of the toughest nuts to crack, the regular nut cracker just won’t do the job. In the Philippines, people use a bolo or machete to break into the tough shell.
But naturally, you get the best taste and nutrients from these nuts when they are freshly cracked from their shell. Thus The Cracking Monkey Pili Nuts was created.
