unknown food plant

1. Has anyone an idea to which species those tubers belong? I found it exhibited at the festival Lejla Mgarrija last year.
2. This pic with the fruits is Meryta denhamii, demonstrated as food at the festival Lejla Mgarrija last year. How do the Maltese eat it: salad, vegetable, fruit?
