Betel nuts, from the betel nut palm tree (Arecha catechu), are chewed for their intoxicating effect which is similar to alcohol. Watercolour by the British artist Olivia Fanny Tonge (1858-1949). This artwork is from a collection of watercolours drawn by Tonge in the period 1908 to 1913, during two visits to India. The collection was presented to the Natural History Museum, London, UK, in 1952.
