MYOGA GINGER growing By Bruce Adams [All Rights ReservedUsed By Permission] (Photo Credits)

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.

     An interesting variety of ginger that flowers from the base of the plant, not the tip as with many others. It is the immature flower buds that are picked before they break the surface of the soil and become "green" due to sun exposure. Best gr...
