Tasted the leaf of the local "sunflower", it was aromatic and not unpleasant. Might be good for a tea or as a component of a salad, if it turns out to be nontoxic; not sure I want to complete an edibility test today.

I also tried the blossom of the African tulip tree. It has a sweet liquid resting in the "cup" that could possibly be poured out without harming the plant at all, but I had already torn the petals so I chewed one. I can't say what it tasted like, but it was good. If it turns out to be edible, it would make a tasty and attractive addition to any meal.
