Bicol region is famous for Pili Nut, it is abundant especially in the area of Albay, Camarines Sur and Sorsogon.

Based on Wikipedia, only the Philippines processed Pili Nuts for commercial purposes.
the fruit is tasty
Variety of processed pili nuts are available, some are salted, caramelized and sugar coated. Your choices are endless. I like the one with sugar coated and the Mazapan Pili. :)

The locals even cooked/boiled the Pili Nut and used it as their viand. They just put salt or sugar and they are good to go. I tried it, but I am not a fan of it.

For me pili nut is better than almonds, well lets not compare it to pistachios. :)
