Hello folks!

So I just read a great thread about how bindweed is edible and that got me thinking: Is Burmuda grass edible?

So a did a small bit of googling and found that most grasses are edible but nothing specific to Burmuda grass. Most other topics talk about how awful it is. So I thought that I would ask here. I imagine the taste would be a bit blend or chewy, but I could always ferment it with spices for extra nutrition and satisfaction.

The first link didn't work, I think this is the one you mean about eating bindweed.

Plants for the Future page on bermuda grass doesn't give it an edibility rating. However, it does give a fairly high medicinal rating.

It looks like a plant worth investigating further.
