Kava was a Bajoran plant and a versatile foodstuff. The plant had at least three edible parts: its fruit, roots, and nuts.

Additional uses of kava included:

  • Kava rolls were typically served as a breakfast item. Kira Nerys, on one occasion, ordered a kava roll with her raktajino. (DS9: "Resurrection")
The term "kava" has remained rather ambiguous throughout its many spoken references.

Kava fruit

Kava fruit was the primary ingredient of kava juice and springwine. (DS9: "Penumbra")

Kava root

The kava root was quite valuable as well. There is a Bajoran folktale in which three brothers who discover a large kava root are almost torn apart by their greed. (DS9: "Starship Down")

Kava is also the name of a root native to the southern Pacific Region of Earth, where it is often made into a beverage and used for ceremonies.
