Palm oil forests of Siaya

No, I’m not talking about West Africa or those on an island in lake Victoria. Palm oil forests exist sorry ‘thrive’ well in Siaya. Birds of prey and girls love their white seeds that taste like coconut – simply, addictive!!!
Small like a nut but very tasty, you’ll just want to keep popping one in the mouth..
