The Nipa palm fruit is a small, reddish-brown fruit that grows on the Nypa fruticans palm tree. It’s found in coastal areas of South and Southeast Asia. The fruit is used to make palm sugar and an alcoholic beverage called toddy. Nipa palms are ecologically important for stabilizing coastlines and providing habitat for wildlife, but they face threats from deforestation and climate change. They also have cultural significance in some communities.
