Yes, you can also use "trumas", but I think "valgomasis trumas" is more common ("valgomasis" means "eatable"). I would translate "valgomasis trumas"

Asker: I looked at google pictures: there are no matches for valgomasis trumas, and for triufelis I found a kinf of sweets =(

Asker: yes, I found trumas in vikipedia, but what is "valgomasis"? is this word necessary here? or maybe we can say just trumas?
