I'm looking for a plant identification on a plant that supposedly is edible.
The leaves look like cannabis and it has a drop shape fruit that points upwards (2nd pic).
It's a very vigorous grower and has invasive properties, it seams from the aggressive growth it has shown on it's first season.
Your help is very much appreciated. Thank you (::: D)
Is it a volunteer?
I say it has invasive potential solely for its prolific growth and amount on fruits. It covered a small citrus and some well growing hardy kiwi.
As pfaf says:
Fruit. Young fruits are eaten raw or cooked and have a similar taste to cucumbers though they are not crisp. Older fruits are cooked, they can be stuffed in much the same way as marrows. The fruit is about 6 - 15cm long and 6cm wide. Leaves and tender young shoots - cooked and used as greens.
permaculture is a more symbiotic relationship with nature so I can be even lazier. Read tiny ad:Rocket mass heaters in greenhouses can be tricky - these plans make them easy: Wet Tolerant Rocket Mass Heater in a Greenhouse Plans
