The pili tree (Canarium ovatum Engl.) is indigenous to the Philippine archipelago and grows primarily in the bicol region. It is an extremely hardy tree and its fruit is somewhat jurassic in appearance. pili fruit The fruit (often called a nut but is technically a drupe, according to Doreen Fernandez in Fruits of the Philippines) is about 5-6 centimeters long and has a think black skin when ripe. Under the skin is a fibrous (hairy!)greenish pulp. The very hard pointed shell houses the oily and yummy nut within. It is the nut within that most Filipinos think of when you say Pili Nut.

According to Alan Davidson, pili nuts possess the highest fat content of all nuts in the world (even more fat than the macadamia!), Pili has the flavor of pumpkin seed when raw but is even more delicious when roasted. Some think the nut has a texture and flavor that surpasses the more common almond. Pili trees generally grow wild rather than in organized plantations so the supply of nuts is limited and erratic. Fruits are at their peak around July through September, assuming some huge typhoon hasn’t blown them all off the trees. The fruits spoil relatively quickly due to the high-fat content, so that explains why they are rapidly preserved with salt or tons of sugar.

Finding fresh pili fruit in Manila is truly a needle in a haystack proposition unless you have a tree growing in your neighborhood. pili nut Yesterday at the market I was thrilled to find a small basket of fresh pili and I eagerly picked some out so I could write about them here. The fresh nuts were just P1 each though they were not the finest quality… If you find fresh and ripe nuts, Bicolanos like to boil the fruit briefly, carefully peel the thin black skin, then dip the hairy pulp in fish sauce (guinamos) or patis and eat this straight away. It is an acquired taste, I kid you not, but delicious if you have acquired the taste. And few foods would be more native than pili prepared this way.

At the Bicol fair at Mega Mall in mid-October, I picked up fresh kernels and nuts within for just P35 for a 1/2 kilo (middle photo above) and I also purchased three types of pili snacks – sugar coated, caramel coated and salted. pili snacks All were very fresh and delicious. Little packets of the snacks were P20, a tad on the pricey side but if you ever had to crack open a nut, extract a whole kernel inside, then preserve and sell it before it spoils, you would charge that much too.

    Hi,

    I am from Bicol and I’ve been considering and finding ways on how to bring the Pili nut to the US. There are some recipes
    there that could become nice product to sell here in the US.
    I’m in California by the way. My kins in Bicol region (Albay, Philippines) have plantations of Pili. I would like to work with somebody who may be able to suggest on how to
    import that to US. Or even if you’re just interested for a few of them I could possibly find out a way to bring cooked Pili from Philippines. I think fresh ones in shell will still need to go through Customs so that’s a little hard to do. But Candied pili nuts will be easier.

    I am from Samar and we are having a Pili production in different barangays here in our town (Allen).As part of our Extension Service in school we Organize Pilinut Vendors/Processors. In fact, we conduct trainings/seminars on Packaging and Labelling, Current Goods Manufacturing Practices. Though they improved the packaging/labelling of their products, still they’re yearning for more income. In fairness, the quality of their product is good enough. The only problem is the marketing for their product. By sharing this online, I hope i could get any insights from readers.

    Pili is the greatest, so much better than almonds. I wonder if anyone has info on the nutritional value and health benefits of pili. Just got a couple of bars of pili marsipan from the Philippines and they’re just as I remembered them, not too sweet, smooth textured and with a mild nutty flavor. I just want to know if something this good could actually be healthy as well.

  24. brenda says:

    We call it “nilanta” in Sorsogon. I believe not all varieties of pili meat could be eaten. And we dont boil them, just put them on a bowl with very hot water and after about 10mins, they’re all soft and ready to eat! Excellent with guinamos (but better with bagoong from Pangasinan, with fried fish and steaming rice. Gosh, I’m salivating!

    I remember on of my aunt who’s got perfect teeth and she could crack a small pili shell with her teeth!

  25. jaciel orandain says:

    Boiled or “nilanta” pili is tops with “padas” or fish sauce.Before I would normally peel off the black cover before eating eat,now I can eat it all together.I come from Virac Catanduanes and we have some pili trees with different size of nuts and the quality of the meat.Some are fleshy and some are not,some takes longer to cook others are quick to soften.If you over boiled it it wont soften anymore thus the time for it to be in hot water is important.I would like that more people would try to eat the meat since it is high on fiber,the only problem is its availability in Manila.

  26. Inn Avenir - Kelly says:

    Hello, my husband and I are interested in importing Sorsogon based Pili Nut prepackaged products. The product labelling and nut product processing would need to satisfy Australian Quarantine and Customs laws before hand. If anybody has had previous expereince with this matter I would greatly appreciate their input. We may also be intersested in other Sorsogon based products as well. We are price concious and we will have a local person/buyer to purchase these products for us on our behalf, so we will not be getting ripped off by unscrupulous people.

  27. Marketman says:

    Inn Avenir – Kelly, I suspect the strict requirements to clear Australian food laws are not something to be taken lightly. Good luck finding a supplier that has already cleared those hurdles…

    Hello,

    Glad to find this website. I am glad to know that there are many Pili Nut proponents.

    Our foundation has planted over a thousand Pili Nut trees in Palawan and will be expecting full production in a few years ago. Right now, a few trees are already fruiting. In addition to this some farmers are already harvesting their Pili trees planted 8 years ago when we started the community development project.
    Our Pili plantations are continually being expanded along with our rubber plantations.

    Hope to hear from any one who is interested in a tie up for future business.

    I just love Pili. Was looking for uncooked nuts during a recent visit to Legaspi but had a hard time looking for it. Luckily found some at Satellite Market but at 400 per kilo. Does anyone know where I can buy uncooked, by the kilo, of Pili here in Manila and what the going price is? I don’t usually see it in baking stores.

    I want to develop a 1.4has farm in Camarines Sur to pili plantation. It is in the middle of riceland (often called upland but actually a bit elevated compared to surrounding paddies). Is this area ideal to grow pili trees?

    Also, approximately how many kilos of pili kernels (the white part) can be harvested from a tree in a year? How much does 1 kilo of pili kernel sell for?

    Thanks!

    Pili Nuts is a delicacy. I would suggest People in the Philippines should plan thousands of these trees. It would benefit the future of the country. Strong resistance on typhoon plus the fruit itself is better than almond or macademia nuts. Also people on a tropical area should do the same glorified pili nuts. I wish, I could plan them in Florida, USA

  44. Amy says:

    My family is from Sorsogon and we are in the business of Pili products. We supply shelled & peeled pili in Naga, Legaspi and Manila by bulk which eventually are cooked, packed and marketed in the locality. Some I believe are marketed to Baguio, Manila and other parts of Southern Luzon area. Pili is comparable to the coconut tree which they say is the tree of life as almost all of its parts and fruits are useful. Same with Pili, you do not just throw the shells after getting the Pili meat, we also sell the shells and i think it’s used for orchid growing and sometimes burned to produce coals. I’m sure there are still a lot more uses to it that I am just not aware of since our business is currently focused on the Pili meat & raw shell. We are also selling roasted Pili but only on a per order basis. If anyone is interested to buy Pili in retail or wholesale quantities, raw or cooked, please email me at amie_espinola@yahoo.com

    i planted pili in my hometown,dao, antique. five years ago. four years after,some showed sign of reproduction by bearing flowers. however, not all of the trees gave me fruits for some are males and cannot bear fruits, they just keep on flowering. on the other hand, some pilis bore fruits and i was amazed. the fruits taste really nice. i propagate pili by burying the seeds in a seed bed but the soil must be sterilized first so that bacteria will not destroy the embryo.now, i’m amazed looking at their purple fruits when ripe but most of all, i enjoy eating it’s flavorful fruits.

    all interested buyers please contact 09205011422 or email me at e_bonto@yahoo.com for orders… We offer discount to bulk orders of pilinuts!

    I would like to clarify that the price of pilinut products depends on the season.. raw pilinuts (no shell)can cost Php 350.00 up to Php 600.00 per kilo during lenten season but somehow in times that the supply is too much it can be as low as Php 150.00. But with those people interested in pulp (pilinut with shell and the black coating) usually it is sold Php 50.00 per 100 pcs or kilo

    Please be advised that some crook people sold with label 100% pure pilinut but it was not really a pili or another case is for some goodies like mazapan de pili wherein they put starch or other things just to deceive buyers. Be careful and look for a real supplier pilinuts and manufacturer of pili products.

    Hope this can help!

    i am interested in Pili nut Sprouts. Our local organic nurseries in Hilo are out of them until next year.
    They are by far the best tasting nuts I have ever had. I consider myself a nut expert.

    Good that there’s a lot of people here interested in pili nuts. It has great potential and can be one of the Philippines’ unique products (e.g. Hawaii is famous for macadamia nuts). I wonder if people are trying new ways to use pili nuts so one could create a new market for it(e.g. plain roasted pili nuts, pili nuts with different flavors, chocolate covered pili nuts or even pili nut oil or pili nut pesto!).

    Hello OrB! You like the pilinuts coated with chocolates? Please visit Legaspi City where chocolate coated pilinuts can be found, specifically at the Airport Cafe and at Locsin Pilinuts. I am sure you will like it very much as many people has!

    Sir,

    What stores in Metro Manila do you supply pili nuts? Do you have a contact number? My friend is in Manila and he wanted to see the pili nuts. I did not send him any sample because as you said you have variety of cooked pili nuts. You can text me thru this number 0915 190 5276.

    Thanks.

    Mercy
