dc.descriptionCelery leaves in your soup, cabbage in the Caribbean, and young cashew leaves, all have something in common: they are all edible. There are more species with edible foliage than you ever had imagined. Edible Leaves of the Tropics shows that leaves providing high-quality food are widely available. Apart from the polar areas and perennial deserts, edible plants grow everywhere on earth. Many of them are known, but a lot more are rarely eaten or not even discovered as edible. Some are poisonous if not cooked, some have a strong taste and are only meant for seasoning, and some are used for colouring. The book describes several hundreds of familiar and exotic varieties, their origin, growth habit, cultivation, nutritional value, multiple uses, and cautions. An appendix lists over 1500 additional species reported to have edible leaves. A useful book for all those working with tropical plants and those involved in nutrition or agricultural development.
