Hardy ginger variety, very popular used in desert foods. Aromatic perennial plant with a pungent rhizome that is used as a spice, flavouring, food, and medicine. Excellent pot plant and easy to harvest all year round by digging fresh tubers as you need them. The leafy stems of ginger grow about a meter high.

Customer Comments on Ginger QLD
All gingers prefer filtered light, rich, deep, fertile soils with plenty of organic matter, good water and warm climates. Poor soils and cooler climes are tolerated but root yield is subsequently poorer. All have beautiful flowers. | David White - Newcastle, NSW 28-May-2006
Buy a root leave it in a dark cupboard for 2-3 weeks then plant | Millie Greg - Pechuzonia, PI 08-Mar-2008
