Targola/Taal (Ice Apple or Sugar Palm fruit)
A type of palm fruit that grows in clusters, targola or taal has a stiff brown exterior and a jelly-like interior. On cutting open, each fruit has jelly-like segmented seeds with a soft off-white skin that darkens to a light brown when exposed to air. Removing the thin skin can be tiresome, but the effort is well worth it. A cooling treat in the hot summer season, biting into a targola releases the refreshing sweet juice that resides in the center of each segment. The fruit is also used to make toddy, a local alcoholic beverage.
