Abstract
Yeheb, or to use other variants, Yebb, or Yeeb, is a seed eaten by the Somalis and is obtained from the pods of Cordeallxia edulis Hemsl a dwarf shrub of the Amherstieae in the Caesalpiniacee which is restricted to Somaliland and south-eastern Ethiopia. Its existence appears to have been first recorded by the Italian Robecchi when traversing Somaliland from Obbia to Bari in 1871, when he met with it twice and records its name Jiebb in the first instance and again as Jieheb Gud or Guda.
