Have you grown Smilax(Ã¥ÂÂÃ¨ÂÂ¯Ã¨Â")? How is the taste? Thanks
It is a noxious weed plant here. Young shoots are edible if you are really hungry.
I like them. In spring, you can collect large bunches of tender young tips in the woods. They taste not unlike asparagus but slightly tart. I eat them fresh but they can be cooked if desired, nice with some butter. The ones with a reddish tint tend to be bitter, I avoid them. Some people cook the roots.
