Oncosperma filamentosa Blume,
Nibung Palm; 
 


Oncosperma filamentosum is a cabbage like young shoots and is suppose to be an edible vegetable by the local name ‘Maachol’ in Marathi, generally available in locations close to Mangroves like Rewas near Alibaug and creeks near the mouth of a river meeting the sea. Can someone post a picture of this vegetable and confirm on the above.
Another species is Pluchea Indica.
Are there any edible wild vegetables that grow in the mangroves?
