‰p–¼‚Í Large-fruited adlay, Edible adlayB
Large-fruited adlay (Coix ma-yuen) belongs to the Poaceae (the Grass
family). It is thought to be native to India or Southeast Asia. It was
introduced into Japan via China in the middle days of Edo Era (about 250
years ago). This herb is a variety of Job's tears (Coix lacryma-jobi). The
stem is erect and can reach 1-1.5 m in height. The leaves are narrow-
lanceolate and arranged in alternate. The spikes are borne on the axils, and
the flowers bloom from August to October. The fruits are elliptic and ripen
in brownish-red. The seeds are edible and used as a incredient of adlay tea
or distilled spirit.
