Wasabi root being grated for useBy Chris 73 CC BY-SA 3.0 (Photo Credits)
Botanical Name: Eutrema japonicum

Extremely strong pungency that is akin to hot mustard, wasabi produces vapours that stimulate the nasal passages more than the tongue. Generally used as a sauce that makes sushi or other foods more flavourful by adding spice. Use the stem sparingly and finely grated. Grows naturally along stream beds in cool mountain rivers valleys of Japan. Challenging to grow in Australia. Requires cool, moist, shaded conditions to thrive. It takes about 18 month - 2 years for plants to mature, in the meantime use the leaves and the leaf stems in salads, curries and pickled accompaniments.

Other Names: Eutrema wasabi, Mazuma, Wasabia japonica, Japanese horseradish

Wasabi Plant - Eutrema japonicum

Very easy to grow in Melbourne provided it is kept in full shade over summer. Doesn't like strong sun and soil should be kept moist. Suitable for growing in pots and kept under trees for shade. Both the rhizomes and leaves are delicious used as condiments and in salads.
