On my SWAMI-X list, Sago Palm is listed under in the fruit section. I thought that sago pearls were made from the pith of the palm stems (in fact I've seen it done) rather than the fruit. I've never heard of any fruit from the sago tree being used commercially. Or is Sago Palm referring to something else?

Any ideas?

Ooh that's a site to bookmark - thanks!

Well well. How about that? It says that it's a threatened species, and we're eating it?

So is the Sago Pearl on SWAMI-X? Because it doesn't appear on my list, and it's easier to get here than tapioca.  ;D
