i like nithya vazhuthana, its my favorite
I got the seeds from an Ebay seller from Kerala, and I am growing it in Norman, Oklahoma, U.S.A, It grows easily and aggressively, and I will have a harvest of 10 to 15 pounds by the end of October. I find when a cut the stem of this vegetable, a white sap comes out. Is this normal?
Yes it is normal. I also bought the seeds from ebay and growing it in Virginia. One thing you can do is after slicing the vegetable, keep it in water for a while same like we do for Indian eggplant to remove the sap/stain. Then it is ready to be cooked.
May be I and my wife are allergic to this vegetable. I had a mild nausea and an upset stomach while my wife felt giddy and nauseated. She vomited whatever she ate and I had to take some antacid and anti-gas tablets. I prepared sauteed clove bean curry with the same recipe I use for eggplants. So please be careful in eating this vegetable. I destroyed all the clove bean plants in my backyard garden.
