They are runners with green globule like flowers. Probably these are babies. My Sopu/ leafy vegetablewala tells me it is called HonegoNe in Kannada. He knows he has met the right person to teach about new veggies. These are supposed to be good for the eyes. What are they called in English or any other Indian language?
He sold that entire lot in the basket for just Rs.7. These take a lot of time to clean and like all leafy vegetables that demand thorough sorting and cleaning can be cooked only on the weekends. This lot was so fresh that it had an instant pick me up effect on me. My Dad tells me we get them in Mumbai too when the adivasis of Thane and nearby areas visit the city. So they are very cheap but a rare treat.
