The roots of T dioica are extremely poisonous but the shoot portion has medicinal properties as well as taken as a leafy vegetable in Bengal but it's bitter to taste we call it " Palta".

Satish ji
The wild growing species is edible (fruits as well as leaves), and sometimes also grown to limited extent.
