Areca nut is a commercial crop. We have several palms planted all over the border. We brought these saplings from our garden in the city. These saplings were produced from areca nuts that I had bought from my sister back home.
The saplings were used for my landscaped gardens in the city These were remaining. Today all have grown into yielding full grown palms.
Area nuts are eaten along with the beetle leaf which is in great demand here. We do not eat them but many are addicted to it. They give somewhat the same effect as tobacco chewing
