i was born in the philippines and now live in hawaii. there is a tree called 'katuday' in ilocano language. this tree grows big and tall and produces white flowers. boil in water the flowers but before that take out the little stem in the middle, this may cause headache. eat 4-6 boiled flowers and systolic blood pressure can go down from 10-20 in 5min. to 30 min. Filipinos consider this as a vegetable. Eat it like a steamed vegetable. I eat it plain. Not too many filipinos know this. I think only some Ilocanos from Ilocos Norte in the Philippines know about it. this tree also grows in hawaii and they could sell it at farmers market or local grocery stores--look for it in filipino vegetables area..
