|Are the leaves of chile pepper plants such as jalepenos, cayennes and others edible? If "yes" are there any particularly good uses for the leaves in cooking?
|Peppers, like tomatoes, are members of the Night Shade family. The foliage of either plant can be poisonous if consumed, but the fruit is perfectly safe to eat. Don't use the leaves of pepper plants in cooking or in salads, or even as a garnish on a plate!
