The aidan fruit, also called aridan, uyayak, kyoho, or prekese is the product of Tetrapleura tetraptera. It is native to West Africa, where it is used as a flavoring.[1]

Characteristics edit

The fruit's pod is dark and has four wings or ridges. Two of these wings are woody and inedible, and two are filled with an aromatic pulp described as toffee-like in flavor.[1][2] The seeds inside the pod are not typically eaten.[1]

Use edit

The aromatic pulp of the dried pod is used as a spice in cooking.[1][2]
