    Edible nut yes, white starchy, no flavor to speak of. Now to a serious word of caution. The seed, or nut, pod is filled, on the inside, with millions of super fine needles that will penetrate the curious persons fingers by the thousands. No kidding. By the thousands. Very hard to remove. So the word is; No touch!
