  1. Night shade looks good. I have 3 kinds of Amaranth planted, one with purple leaves, 2 green leaves, must be one of those huh?
    Don't have a clue about the first one but leaves look thick and yummy!:))

  8. where can I get nightshade (manathakkali) seeds? I have been looking for them for a while as they are my favorite greens and apparently, they are not considered edible in the US and hence they are not sold. Please let me know.

  13. I would have guessed chard, but you've got that named in a photo already! It's not malabar spinach is it? All your greens look wonderful. And potatoes in the previous post, I wish I could make those right now! :)

    Now I have to open my eyes and read the other guesses :)

  16. Priya, Kalva get 1/2 a point.
    Pasali Keerai = Spinach no? The leaves of 'Malabar Spinach' are thicker than Spinach and that is answer to the quiz.

    Kay, Deepika, Maheswari and Linda -you'll got it. Cheers!

    Suganya, no idea what the Asian names are, I would like to know those too.
