Ice apple is an oval-shaped fruit that grows in bunches on Palmyra palm trees. The Palmyra palm tree can grow to 30 meters in height, and produces about 50 fruits at a time. Each Munjal fruit is around 15 to 20 centimeters in diameter, and has a hard, purple-black outer shell that resembles the husk of a coconut. The interior is composed of tough white fibers and yellow-orange pulp, and each fruit contains 1 to 3 central seed kernels, which are the most sought after sections for consumption. The young Ice apple seed kernels are translucent and hollow, with a soft, jelly-like consistency much like lychees. Their texture is chewy, and they have a slightly nutty flavour. When the Munjal fruit is mature, the seed is solid and resembles hard coconut meat.
