Customer Tips & Reviews Arrowroot
EASTWOOD, NSW, Australia
Heat loving, and thriving under full Australian sun. As a precaution I've been watering daily, and it has doubled in size. I bought 1 arrowroot plant from Daley's and I received 2 plants in a pot. Since purchase another shoot has come up. It is current...
Attractive plant, have roasted the arrowroot, my chooks & turkey's love eating the leaves
Started indoors - grows like a weed. I love it.
Slash & shred the leaves every 6 months for great mulch
Grows really fast in warm areas. Very promising food for the future!
Wee Waa , NSW
Grows faster than regular canna. Good for planting next to chicken yard for shade.
Bardon, Qld, Australia
Looks like a canna lilly but apparently the root is the source of that cooking powder and flavour. I look forward to seeing what sort of flowers it has.
KENMORE, QLD, Australia
Looks lovely, survives periods without watering very well, grows fast, propogates very easily, and the tubers actually taste good. Used for screening.
Beijing , CHINA
Slice across thinly and deep fry - you'll get arrowroot chips, much like potato chips.
St.vincent And The Grenadines, S.V.G
They are mostly grown in the caribbean but the best are in S.V.G
Recipe : Serve cooked arrowroot then pour over some Extra Virgin Olive Oil and then sprinkle grey sea salt.
Edible fence screener/hedge and mulch for suburban gardens.
