People interested in tropical gardening or botany will find this an indispensable guide to several hundred species of plants with edible leaves. Leaves can provide high-quality food, and in the tropics, many are from perennials requiring little effort for their abundant production. In addition to those species widely known as leafy vegetables, a tremendous variety of trees, ornamentals, weeds, and other plants bear leaves which are eaten or are used for flavoring.
