Cynometra cauliflora.

Botanical name:

Cynometra cauliflora Linn. Leguminosae. Nam-Nam.

East Indies and Malays. The fruit in shape resembles a kidney. It is about three inches long and the outside is very rough. It is seldom eaten raw but, fried with batter, it makes a good fritter. Wight says the fruit is much esteemed in the Eastern Islands.


Sturtevant's Edible Plants of the World, 1919, was edited by U. P. Hedrick.
