Hardy ginger variety, very popular in a range of cooking. Aromatic perennial plant with a pungent rhizome that is used as a spice, flavouring, food, and traditional medicine. In cool climates can perform very well as a pot plant and is easy to harvest all year round by digging fresh tubers as you need them. Young rhizome is pink skinned and the texture is much softer. The leafy stems of ginger grow about a metre high and lend a tropical feel to gardens. Provide good amounts of organic matter and keep well watered right through the growing season for best production

Myoga Ginger

$19.90 ($18.75-$19.90 choose a size)

a native of Japan where it is grown commercially for its delicious spring shoots and young flower buds produced in autumn. Myoga flower buds are used in soups, tempura, pickled and as a spice. Like most gingers it is an understory of forests and so grows best under some shade. It can get sunburned leaves which will reduce its vigor if grown in full sun. In winter the top growth dies back and it regenerates in spring from the underground rhizomes.
