Hi Julius

Thanks for reminding me about Montrichardia seeds. I'd forgotten that Deni's
fantastic book mentions them among many other edible aroids - if folks want
to know about edibility in 'our' family, then PLEASE check out both editions
Deni's book, they're a treasure trove - I ate them (Montrichardia seed, not
Deni's books) while in a small village upstream from Manaus and can report
that they are good, with a rich buttery texture similar to fresh Brazil nut
(not months old packaged ones in supermarkets) or Macadamia (ditto).

Let me also echo Julius' caveat about not trying aroid fruits (or any others
for that matter) unless you ABSOLUTELY know they're safe.
