Stopped by a little farmer’s market in St. Paul yesterday, I think it was at the corner of N. Marion & St. Anthony. Not sure as I'm new here. Anyway, purchased some english pea-size bitter eggplant, some tiny purple & pink corn, and some "sour leaf." I need help identifying the sour leaf.; five lobed pointy leaves, medium green with purple veins, dark purple stems and sour taste, not as sour as sorrel.
Any ideas what this plant’s true name is or, at least a correct name in any language? The closest I've found is chin baung ywet [Burmese] or roselle, which seems to be a catchall name for a variety of species, including hibiscus.
Was too stupid to take a picture while it was fresh, but the attached gives you some idea of the color, 5 pointed leaf shape, etc.
