Abstract
Yeheb, or to use other vari:lnts, Yebb, or Yeeb, is a seed eaten by the Somalis and is obtained from the pods of Cordeauxia edulis Hemsl., a dwarf shrub of the Amherstiere in the Caesalpiniacere 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 liebb in the first instance and again as lieheb Gud or Guda
