The large-fruited adlay (Coix ma-yuen) belongs to Poaceae (the Grass family). It is thought to be native to India or Southeast Asia. It was introduced into Japan via China in the middle days of Edo Era (about 250 years ago). This herb is a variety of Job's tears (Coix lacryma-jobi). The stem is erect and can reach 1-1.5 m in height. The leaves are narrow-lanceolate and arranged in alternate. The spikes are borne on the axils, and the flowers bloom from August to October. The fruits are elliptic and ripen in brownish-red. The seeds are edible and used as a incredient of adlay tea or distilled spirit.
