MYOGA GINGER growingBy Bruce Adams All Rights Reserved, Used By Permission (Photo Credits)
Botanical Name: Zingiber mioga

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.

Myoga Ginger 1/10

Comments: -

     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 grown in semi-shade and under 6 inches of mulch in cooler climes. Reach around under the mulch when the plant is growing strongly and pick the buds before they emerge. Slice and use fresh in salads for a sweet, mild crunchy ginger taste. Can be used in stir fries and braised dishes. Pickled in sweet mirin wine, it is a real treat. Easy to grow in pots with rich compost as the soil. Do not over water as this acn cause rotting of the rhizome.
