Edible Stalks, Shoots and Stems

Many of the plants discussed in my site and ebook for Utah and western US states have multiple edible parts and with some the entire plant is edible. This is often the case with plants that offer edible stalks, shoots and stems. I wondered about what to name this category as I was updating the site. You can eat the stalk of cattail, the young shoots from milkweed and asparagus and the entire plant including stems of the filaree and purslane plants.
