Are Musa Basjoo leaves okay to eat?

poaky1August 21, 2013

Some cultures I've seen on TV use banana leaves to wrap up meat and rice or whatever else to make food. Are Musa banana leaves poisonous to eat? I have these ENOURMOUSW banana leaves on my Musa's and hope I can use a few to cook with before winter makes them mush.
