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.
Flowers grow upwards one after another and fruit points upwards aswell.
The plant is all green but tends to become kinda yellowish when older.
Thank you ::
If that's the case, you're in luck, as it's edible.
I'm very happy about this ::
Much Love and thanks a lot for you help!
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.
Hey, sticks and stones baby. And maybe a wee mention of my stuff:
