Maní

mani

Maní is Spanish for peanut.

In English, a single “peanut” refers to the hull (pericarp) and kernels (cotyledon) together.  Moreover, “peanut” may refer to a single kernel. The same situation occurs in Spanish. Pictured above: one maní.

This maní was eaten at the Los Technicos build at Las Rocas near Choachi in Colombia. Hulls here may contain anywhere from 1 to 4 kernels. The illustration above depicts one containing four manís.
