The Pili nut is the fruit of the Pili tree that thrives in the volcanic regions of Bicol in the Philippines. For years it was relatively unheard of overseas but is now gaining popularity for its nutritional value and health benefits. In the Philippines, the nut is usually roasted and sweetened as a snack or used in recipes that call for nuts. But to harness the maximum benefits of this super food, the nut is best consumed after pre-sprouting and eaten straight out of its shell.

Available in different sizes


The Best and Easiest Way to Eat The Pili Nut

Even in the Philippines where the pili nut is grown and harvested you would be hard pressed to find the pili nut being sold in stores still in their shells. Usually, you get them out of their shells roasted, salted or candied. Why? Because pili nuts are one of the toughest nuts to crack, the regular nut cracker just won’t do the job. In the Philippines, people use a bolo or machete to break the tough shell.

But naturally, you get the best taste and nutrients from these nuts when they are freshly cracked from their shell. Thus The Cracking Monkey Pili Nuts was created.

For the first time, you can now enjoy your pili nuts the natural way straight from its shell with The Cracking Monkey’s patented “notch and lever” system. No processing or roasting just pili nuts naturally pre-sprouted to enhance their nutritional value.


Our product is 100% natural. You are eating the fruit of Mother Nature. This means that sometimes there are defects that you will only discover when you crack the shell.

So make sure that you check out the product before you eat it. Some of the nuts may have not developed properly, or have ‘over-developed’.  🙂
