Interesting edibles, Dave, We have grown most of them except breadfruit, tu-lip, and water dropwort.

The Walangur is an old houseplant of years ago, I still have a couple of pots of them.  The pit-pit was not easy to grow at my place, I think Lissa may have been successful with that plant. I have a couple of varieties of Aibika.  It's good to see the nutritional value in these greens.

I have a  PNG recipe book somewhere with quite a few recipes in it.
