Kitul Tree ( Caryota urens )
This is a common sight witnessed in Sinharaja where villages carry pots full of sap trapped from the inflorescence of locally known Kitul Tree ( Caryota urens ) family palmae fermentation of the sap produces an alcoholic beverages.
The unfermented sap when concentrated by heating forms a thick syrup which is relished as treacle ( peni ) by Sri Lankan. Treacle in turn produces juggery ( Hakuru ) crystalized brown suger.
These two products fetch very attractive prices thus making a livelihood of the local people.
Sinharaja juggery is well known pure and natural all over Sri Lanka.
