Coastal Survival Wild Edible Plant - Tropical Almond

Tropical Almond trees (Terminalia catappa) are common on beaches throughout Thailand and the general region. Though not really easy to open, the nut inside is edible.

It does not taste like an almond. I think it's called an almond because the outside seed looks like an almond. The tropical almond is a different family and genus.
