Nam nam or nam nam fruit is native to Malaysia and it can be found in South East Asia, India and Sri Lanka. It is classified in the same family of the common “groundnut” or peanut.
This fruit is somewhat flattened and usually semicircle or kidney-shaped. The surface of the pod is rough and wrinkled. It is dull green and will turn yellowish-brown when it matures.
The single, flat seed is similar shaped to the fruit pod and is yellow to brown, depending on the ripeness of the fruit. The flesh is edible and it tastes sour and mildly sweet. But it is not popular for fresh consumption as it is cultivated in some countries mainly for the seed’s oil that can be used for medicinal purposes.
