RE: Bamboo shoots?

Auralie: Is your neighbor aware that his bamboo is beginning to invade
your property? If so, does he plan on doing anything about it? I would
think that if this isn't stopped soon, you could have a real problem on
your hands...

Subject: [CHAT] Bamboo shoots?

My neighbor's bamboo is sendng shoots up throughout my lawn and flower
bed, <br>which does not make me happy. However, I wondered if these are
edible. Are <br>all bamboo shoots edible or only certain kinds? I have
no idea what kind of <br>bamboo this is except that it is invasive. The
shoots pop up about a foot in a <br>day, and are about half an inch
thick. They are covered with dark grayish <br>sheaths, but these peel
off easily and underneath the stems are tender and <br>crunchy. They
look as if they might be good in salads or stir-fried. Do any of you
<br>know if I would be taking a chance if I tried eating them? It would
give me a <br>sort of perverse satisfaction to get some good out of
