    Hi everyone,

    Can anyone tell me if the vegetable 'morning glory' that is eaten in Thailand is the same variety that is grown as an ornamental flower here in England?

    The variety grown here is Ipomoea purpurea

    I just love the taste of the Thai variety!

    Hi Ivor,

    I ask my (Thai) wife and she told me that this vegetable is called "water spinach", it is in Vietnam allmost the national food.
    In Thailand it is also eaten. I tried to find in the internet if it is the same Latinname. I found out there are a lot of varieties, so I can not tell you if this flower in England is the same as in Thailand.
    In the Netherlands we know this flower as a 1-year plant for in the garden/balcony and can get 3 meters long.

    Thanks for your reply Dirk, and thanks to your wife also.

    I have also checked the internet, but unfortunately, I don't think that the flower grown outdoors here is the same variety. I was hoping that I could get the seed and grow some, maybe, but I don't think that our climate would suit the tropical variety either, unless it is possible to grow it in a greenhouse.

    Actually my wife eats it. She yells at me when I try to cut down the hideous weed from our shed out back each year. Nasty bitter, but that is a flavor and texture that many Thai people like (bitter melon?).

    Though I think Dirk was talking about the leaves themselves rather than the vegetable. Both are edible.

    Hi iGotNoTime,

    Me and my wife love it. Maybe we can save you the trouble of cutting it down and getting an ear bending from your wife each year if we just buy your shed 5555

    Does anyone have a picture of the" morning glory" you guys are talking about?
    this site is the plant I am thinking about. Some plants cannot be used as "food" because of their chemical effects on us people. So just to be sure we are on the same page My Webpage
    enjoy your flavorite plant just be sure it is correct one:p
