Palm trees represent a cultural symbol of Cambodia and Khmer people have always protected their palm trees from deforestation, until today. It’s estimated that 20,000 families in Cambodia produce palm sugar, mainly as a paste, using inefficient stoves which make a low-quality sugar. Palm sugar production takes place during the dry season (from December till May)
when palm trees produce juice.
