@TeetatFarm @HighVoltageEng Yea sir, here we call it Polk Weed. Phytolacca americana, also known as American pokeweed, pokeweed, poke sallet, dragonberries is a poisonous, herbaceous perennial plant in the pokeweed family. They would cook it twice so it’s safely edible. The green part.
Phytolacca americana. Aka pokeweed. Grandma used to harvest young leaves as a cooked green. It is however VERY toxic & deadly if not cooked multiple times. I never recommend anyone ingest this plant. But a mature plant's berries attract many birds. https://t.co/3yPcKdSbiy https://t.co/8Kzi8OIyOm
@agraybee The example I like is- Phytolacca americana is the common pokeweed, a herbaceous perennial that gets up to 8ft tall. Phytolacca dioica is the ombu tree, which gets up to 60 feet tall. https://t.co/6LyrxNweX2 https://t.co/dvsOfeLYNt
