    Is this good for anything? Can this be eaten, or does it flower, or only for propagating young?

      Surprisingly Pandanus fruit are edible, but can be bitter if not processed properly. It is used more for flavoring, but can also be eaten raw or cooked. It is high in nutrients. After processing it is sometimes spread like butter. The trees provides materials in Oceania for housing, textiles, handicrafts, medication, and more.
