jirimandi (noun) (palm) coconut; Coconut Plam

Coconut is highly regarded and often planted. Nut is eaten raw or when the nut starts to sprout whereupon the developing embryo (the “candle”) is eaten. Roasting improves nut flavour. People are debating whether jirimandi came before or after the invasion of wangarr. (Scientific name Cocos nucifera. Family Arecaceae, synonym Palmae.)
