MUSHROOM PLANT

Botanical Name: Rungia klossii
Description

This low growing perennial herb gets its name from the mushroomy flavoured leaves. The leaves and stems are eaten raw in salads or they can be cooked as a green vegetable in stir fries. The leaves are rich in chlorophyll. Leaves contain 3% protein, they are also very high in calcium, a richer source than most foods.

Mushroom Plant 10/10

Kloe's Edible Fruits
Update: 2303 days 19hrs

Comments: - Took a little while to establish, but lots of new growth despite plenty of leaf harvesting.  Great plants.  They don't like to dry out, or too much sun.  Have an inch of mulch on the surface to help with water retention.

Planted: 2010

Height 30 Centimetres

Growing: In a Pot

Qty: 2

Sun/Shade: Low Sun

Love the taste - just like juicy mushrooms! Great in salads. Pretty dark purple flowers too.


Grow easily from cuttings put directly in the ground. You can pick individual leaves as you need them or if you double-up harvesting and pruning the stalks will keep for a few weeks in a cup of water in the kitchen. Cuttings kept in water don't tend to put out roots so striking is best done straight into the ground.

Really tasts like mushrooms.  You wouldn't believe it unless you tried it for yourself. It's a perenial thing, just keeps on growing on. It bared my mild winter OK. I don't think It would take the cold real well though.

Pollination: Self Pollination
