New to this site, living in Cambodia and trying to figure out what on our property is edible... We have common pigweed which is considered a vegetable here, but I am trying to figure out if this plant (known locally as p'kaa mao dop aka 10 o'clock flower) is possibly red amaranth... It is a perennial here, prolific and grows back seasonally after being cut back upon going to seed. In the picture shown these are about 4.5 tall. It is not used as a vegetable as far as anyone here knows, they consider it an ornamental plant. Super common, fast growing and super hardy so I'm hoping someone can tell me if it is indeed edible and whether or not it is red amaranth. Googling around i would say it looks veryvery similar but that's all i have to go on. Thoughts?
