In theory it is edible if cooked but does have high level of toxins that must be cooked out. We always recommend not eating to lessen any possible chance of it being harmful.
So therefore in answer to your question, I would consider it non edible and that way you don't take a chance. It is a beautiful flowering vine that is very attractive and very drought tolerant for primarily ornamental value!!!
