Geoffraea superba.

Botanical name:

Geoffraea superba Humb. & Bonpl. Leguminosae. Almendor.

South America. Gardner says this plant produces a fleshy drupe about the size of a walnut which is called umari by the Indians. In almost every house, whether Indian or Brazilian, he observed a large pot of this fruit being prepared. The taste of the kernel is not unlike that of boiled beans. It is the almandora of the Amazon.


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