Jalawure (Tacca leontopetaloides L) is a type of plant that has a habitat in the coastal. Tubers of jalawure are used as alternative food ingredients because they contain starch (amylose and amylopectin). Jalawure is known by the coastal communities in Patutrejo Village Grabag Purworejo, Central Java as mureng. However, many people have not known its use. This study aims to determine the perception and attitude of the communitytowards jalawure. Data was collected through interviews with members of the local community and village head. The data obtained were tabulated and analyzed using a Likert Scale. The study was conducted from October 2020 to March 2021. The results showed almost all respondents know jalawure because they had seen jalawure directly either in the yard or garden or in forest areas in their villages. In total, the perception and attitude of the community on cultivation, benefits, processing, and marketing of jalawure are moderate, this is indicated by the value of all statements which show a value of more than 50%. These positive perceptions and attitudes can be used for the development of jalawure through jalawure cultivation activities so that the community does not depend on jalawure plants that grow wild/naturally.
