    Ahhh. These grow on the sea shore, yes? The seeds inside the husk (much the same size as an avocado seed) can be grated or smashed up to a pulp and are a poison that kill fish. Pacific Islanders use it to get fish to float to the surface when reef gathering.

    As for a name...I don't knpw and don't know what to google.
