Dear Tanay, Mani ji and friends ... for those of you who are familiar with names of plant (and its parts) please get hold of some online editor and provide the names in your native script ...hope am not asking for too much ... certainly, you will help get the name database richer and worthy.

Please note that the native script requested is not to be with any special fonts ... needs to be just Unicode characters (that are rendered by any computer).

Regards.

dear friends & Fellow Sweet Potato growers,

Please do try out cooking Sweet potato leaves......

We have a patch of Sweet potato which we keep only for the leaves
(because constant pruning does not help in root growth) & i can vouch
the sabzi is really tasty.

regards.
