Betel Leaf

Tom starts with ...
Hi all,
Wondering if anyone know's where I could buy a Betel Leaf Vine? I'm doing a lot of Asian cooking calling for them. Not related to Betel Nut of course, which is illegal in Australia!
I think the formal name is Piper betle (a member of the pepper family).

Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks,

Tom

Hi, the botanic name is Piper longum sy. P. sarmentosum; comm. name La lot, Vietnamese name. You can buy this in Asian veg. shops; put some cuttings in a glass with water and they will be producing roots in no time. The plant likes a wet dark position protected from frost and midday sun; best under big trees.
Regards,
Irma.

These plants go wild from Brisbane to Cairns. I have seen Vietnamese shops in Melbourne selling it for $1.50 a bunch. Irma is right you buy a bunch remove leaves except top bit and recut the bottom and put in a glass jar then it will root as describe by Irma.
I understand that it would be hard to find them in your local shops but try to buy them when you have a chance to go to sydney or Brisbane but only where lots of Vietnamese live. They use in ormelet and for wraping mince meat.

Betel leaf is the leaf Betel nut used to get wrapped in before being chewed. No other relationship between the highly illegal in Australia nut, and the highly legal leaf (a member of the pepper family).

Thanks Tran,
Actually did manage to get my hands on some(fresh too). So remove all of the leaves but say half of one? Then leave in water - in the dark or partial light? Maybe I'm just not patient enough!

Hi Tom,

In tropical QLD this plant is spreading everywhere because once a stem touches the ground, roots just form.

I would choose a bunch that has more sort of long sermi hard wood stems. You could see that at the joint of a stem there would be some roots just started to appear. Remove big leaves for cooking then recut a bit at the bottom so water can go through the stem then put in a glass jar fill with water. To speed it up you should use water with a touch of warmness to help speeding the process. Good luck.

I found the plant at 'All India Foods' in Woolloongabba once but I killed it. I hate it when I make these great chance plant finds, stick it in the ground and it dies. I haven't seen it there since but they might know where to get it.

Betel leaf is tropical and hardy (hard to kill but not cold hardy). contrary to the above, once the cutting has grown a good set of roots it will do fine in full sun although you should probably give it some afternoon shade if the sun is harsh where you live. i keep mine in a hanging basket with a SW exposure which is full afternoon sun where i live (40 degrees north approximately). also, keep the plant in a well draining mix and water frequently when it is hot-evenly moist.

Hi Andrea,

Not just yet. You should wait until it has some roots to be sure because the ground is still cold so it will get rotten. You could plant inside though.

Good luck.

Hi again, Update...just wanted to mention that my patience has paid off and my Betel leaf is finally taking root. Spring has sprung!
Hint: cut stem just below knobbly bit as this is where roots shoot from, and place in glass of water near a heater.

Betel Leaf vine grows like mad in Brisbane. Who said Betel Nut is illegal in Australia. Here is a photo of the Betel Nut ingredients I took recently. The long green "sticks" are the fruits of the Betel Leaf Vine. They are used instead of the leaves. Not shown is the lime powder. The other photo shows the real tree with fruits.

Tran says...
I think there is a confusion with this betel leaf and nuts. They are totally different.

Betel leaf (Trikus picture 1) is from a GROUND COVER plant. Leaves are mainly used in wrapping meat similarly to grape vine leaves. In Thai and Vietnamse cooking we use it sometimes.
It has a special herby smell.

betel nut (pic 1, 2, 3) is used with lime powder and a kind of vine leaves look very much like betel leaves but much lighter in colour and it is from a VINE (NOT FROM A GROUND COVER). People chew a piece of roll made up of a vine betel leaf, a piece of betel nut and a touch of lime powder. When you chew the roll your mouth will turn red. They say it is good for your teeth because of lime powder. In Vietnam, betel leaf vine climb on betel nut palm.

tran , you are so correct , must admit had a little laugh at the comment of being able to grow a palm from a piper leaf , wow anon , must be GOD to be able to do that .. and as far as I know Areca catechu is still a legal plant , damn there are tens of thousands growing up here . I know they do struggle out of the tropics and may not bear well even in Brisbane . Many other Areca spp. are used for similar stimulant effects , some even reputably stronger . One has a very attractive red crownshaft A. macrocalyx and has been spread far and wide . Another similar looking palm Actinorhytis calapparia has much larger seeds and has supposedly magical medicinal powers .

Tran and tr, I am having a good laugh at of your command of English. I have read through all the messages posted here before mine and no one had shown any erronous misunderstanding between Betel Nut and Betel Leaf. If you were laughing at my message, read my message again repeatedly and tell me which wordings of my message show my "confusion"? I know who you are "tr".

your not supposed to have the leaf cos then you can grow the nut.

enjoy your informative posts 'fruitist' and in now way was I denigrating anything you said . I wonder why I am listed as being Tr sometimes instead of trikus .. maybe when I use IE instead of Firefox .

I think the leaf in question should be called Piper leaf and not betle leaf , that just leads to so much confusuion . I hate common names for uncommon plants.

Trikus, thought you got "confused" with my post judging from the fact that no one responded to the 4th post for many months.

Instead of using the Betel Leaves, natives in Borneo used Pepper leaves. Years ago, my neighbour in Borneo had some Pepper vines and Iban ladies used to ask for some leaves when they passed by the house.

Interesting that the Areca catechu palm can start bearing at 5 or 6 years old for about 20 years. Thereafter it become sterile for another 30 years until it dies.

You can buy the whole package in Cairns Rusty market. There is only 1 stall that sells it. It is not easy to find but you won't miss it if you walk past it. You will see a few dark skin ladies sitting much behind the table doing nothing. The stall sells only that stuff.

Although the culinary herb is called "Betel Leaf" it is a different species of pepper (Piper genus) that that used to wrap betel nuts. The latter is Piper betle. The culinary herb is Piper sarmentosum. I'm not sure if this is exactly the same thing as Piper longum (Long Pepper) in which the dried fruit is used as a spice.

You can buy plants for Piper longum(Long pepper), Piper methysticum (Kava Kava, used for making Kava), Piper nigrum (culinary black pepper), Piper sarmentosum (culinary betel leaf) from "All rare herbs".

When they're cultivated cuttings are taken from the top of the mature fine about 1 metre long with at least 3 of the lobes (a 1 metre cutting is likely to have a whole lot more than that).

The vine cutting is buried with one lobe underground and one lobe at ground level (both will root).

Here in Cairns the plant grows like a weed and is a very attractive ground cover.

Chris the plant is growing as a ground cover in front of the Cairns central shopping centre.

If you carefully grabbed a few cuttings from there no one would ever notice the difference or care (if you take cuttings from where the gardeners will have to cut it back you will be saving them a little work).

You can also buy the plant from Limberlost nursery in Redlynch (near the train station).

And it grows at the botanical gardens at Centenary Lakes (so you can identify it.

Black tea will also increase risk of throat cancer.
And coffee will increase your risk of bladder cancer.
but most of us wont get these cancers. Heavy use puts you at higher risk.

Betel doesnt rot teeth. It damages the gums through the excessive use of burnt lime, which is there to liberate the Arecoline in the nut. This is in heavy users!not social users
The receded gums then expose the teeth.
Betel has a reputation of strengthening the teeth, which it probably does by the lime addition supplying calcium to the diet, by the antibacterial activity of the betel pepper and by neutralisng the acid in the mouth.
There would be many factors in oral health in betel chewing areas - diet, lack of dental services, diets rich in sugar - Asian countries IME have a sweeter tooth than Australia.

as for cosmetics. Thats cultural.White teeth are not natural either for an adult - but our youth centred culture still aspires to it. Stained mouth or stained tooth is considered attractive in traditional communities, some blacken the teeth.A betel chewer will have a clean mouth and no tapeworms! Betel chewing is ritually associated with both hygiene and hospitality

the effect of Arecoline is like nicotine. mild stimulating and appropriate for company

I now have both P sarmentosum and what i beliwve is the true P betel from another online vendor

I can confirm yet, but it is not the same as the culinary leaf plant i collected in cairns.

The leaf is more coarse and its definitley a vine. It is not P nigrum as i have that too.

in the past ive been sold P kadsura as P betel. This plant is young so im hesitant to make a call till it gets a chance to grow full sized leaves.
By the end size of the leaf it will help me rule out P kadsura.

Dr.Ganesh Bhat says...
Hi Rev,
I fully support your opinion about chewing betel leaf+Arecanut+lime. In moderation it will not have any ill effects on health. My father in India has been chewing the same during the last fity years or so. In India it is called "paan beeda". People chewing "paan" after lunch or dinner is very common. There will be a "paan beeda" stall near every restaurant in India. The social ill effect is spitting the left out chew is just like spitting chewing gum or tossing the cigarette butts.
Will u pls tell me where can I buy the betel vine through mail order? I live in Perth.
Cheers, Ganesh.

Hi Guys,

I am currently trying to find Piper betel L. plant or fresh leaf in Melbourne. I am not looking for P. sarmentosum which is used in cooking as the purpose is medicinal.

I have tried a few tropical nursery, specialist nurseries and herb grower with no luck (including all rare herb)

Any idea where I can get some in Melbourne? Alternatively I am happy to purchase some interstate as long as I can ship it to Melbourne (i.e., only Eastern states is not limited by quarantine laws)

Thanks in advance

which betel plant ? the one eating with the palm nut and lime ? Can't help you there .

But if you meant the other one that the Asians uses to skewer meat on and BBQ with it, then not the plant but the leaves, you can get them at any Asian grocery shops,

As for the plant you can either try to grow it out from the stems, or fast track.
Go to Bonnirigg garden centers they have it sometime. Or you can order it direct from allrareherbs.com.au .

Tell me how it goes, last resort, If you can't find any there, then I'll give you 1, I managed to pot 1 out 2 months ago, it's small but b/c it's in a small pot it managed to have a little vine growing.

Piper sarmentosum Roxb. is the correct name. Native to China, Cambodia, India and Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Phillippines and Vietnan. Used for wrapping food or as an ingridient for various kinds of curries. Piper betel L. the leaves are pressed togheter to dry then they are used to wrap Betel nut: Areca catechu L. The nut fresh or cured is sliced mix with lime paste and species then wrapped and chewed, this is kept in the mouth and chewed slowly. The salive turns red and is spat out. It is said to cause stimulants effects. This is a practice in South East Asia and also in some Pacific Islands such as New Guinea. I would not use Piper betel for my cooking. Irma Blanco.

The inflorescence of P betel is also used in the quid, i think for added flavour.
Islanders and Papuans called it 'Mustard' or other names.

Sorry bimalendu

but our 'quarantine matters' govt policy
sees it fit to import grain, GMO grain meal and pulse meal easily on a commercial basis
( see where your dry soup beans come from)
but you cant import it to grow
or for personal use

the bad news is for importers
the good news is that we can grow most of what we need here
its just very few have yet

It is very easy to grow betel leaves, just stick the stalk back into a pot with good potting soil at the beginning of winter, throughout winter every 2-3 days give it a bit of water to keep the soil moist, by Spring it will spurt up for you .

Hey Ellen,
I actually tried that, but it didn't work. How long does the stem have to be? Because I got betel leaves and cut of its small stem, and planted that stem in a pot with good nutritional soil. But it didn't work, I attempted that many times. but still no luck. Got any suggestions?

Hi Marc

I hoped you didn't exposed your propagated Betel cuttings pot out in winter time when you've tried it. As Canadian winter is much harsher than a DownUnder's winter.


Take a look at my betel leave plant, that is 2 years old.

When you try to propage through cuttings, choose stalk that is a bit bulky at where the leaves going to spurt out (where I mark #1)Or It is also here is where the roots will spring out from if you bury this into the soil deep enough .

Now I know Canadian winter is quite long, your propagated betel plant-pot cannot be place outside but if you don't have green house then place it where it does get plenty of sunlight/light (place it against a window pane but not touch it since you don't want the coldness to transfer through the pot touching the window glass surface)

Now I've seen how those asian groceries package these herbs, you don't have much choice when choosing to buy asian herbs, freshness is almost nada .
But the older the stalk/cutting you choose for propagating the better the successful rate it will be Marc.

After you choose your victims to propagate, slightly cut the stalks below where I marked #1 in the picture, leaving it 2-3 cm before it reach#1. Now dilute your your soak water with liquid root stimulator grow hormone according to instuction on the bottle.

Soak your cuttings in a glass with the diluted growth hormone, make sure the liquid covered 1-2 cm passed #1 mark. &
leave it soaking for 3 days .

Then plant it in pot with good potting mixed soil that is prepared earlier. After planting it in the prepared pot, give it a good watering. And place it near a glass window so it can get plenty of sunlight / light, every 2-3 days give it a bit of water to keep the soil moist (not soak) . It will take off for you.

Once it is growing, even in summer time you do not put this plant in the ground in the exposed environment, b/c you only have 1 month of good growing season the rest of the summer is windy, this plant can't take that kind of abuse. You only expose it outside, to get rid of the aphids, as all indoor plant, over a period of time the tend to build up with it .

That what me and my mom do when I was back home in Alberta.

Too bad you're so far away, other wise I'd give you this pot (the plant in the picture)

And the stalk/cutting have to be from 15 - 20 cm.

Rev says...
Even in Cairns markets i coulkdnt get leaf
they have the nuts - there seems a few types with the PNG ones renowned to be stronger
other look more like the longer asian types i saw in Bali this summer

they had the fruits of P betel though, the 'mustard', which can substitute for leaf in flavour but fall short in other ways
i picked a ripe bunch so i hope ill be able to grow seedlings from them

Ive recently planted some piper longum, though might be P retrofractum, in fact im suspect of the latter being identity.
great spice! sweet and hot

The piper ive seen most commonly mislabelled in both horticulture and botanic gdns as P betel is piper kadsura

Hi Divay, I have started harvesting betel leave on my farm since 1 month. The demand is overwhelming. Buyers come (to my farm) with labour and pluck betel-leaves at their own cost. We are paid Rs. 375 per basket of 3000 leaves. Every buyer (without exception) has said our betel-leaf is much superior. All happening beyond my expectation. My farm is in Mehboobnagar district, Andhra Pradesh.

Please see that water should be pass away from the soil. Muddy soil stop roots for growing. use more natural fertilizer. Maintain the temperature near 30 to 35degree centigrade. for maintaining temperatur use Polythene nets. for fertilizer use "Steramea" with "sufala". IF you use four bags stearameal use 1/2bags sufala. mix it and use for plant

Hi everyone, used of the betel leaf.
The betel leaf is used in a number of traditional remedies for the treatment of stomach ailments, infections, and as a general tonic. It is often chewed in combination with the betel nut (Areca catechu), as a stimulatory. Some evidence suggests that betel leaves have immune boosting properties as well as anti-cancer properties.

If Saliva's post were an advertiesement it would be subject to the Trade Practices Act. Said Act prohibits deceptive or misleading claims. Doubtless Mr. Saliva is safely beyond reach in Malasia and has nothing to fear. Nevertheless , is no one offended by such quackery?
Betel nut is a stimulant with addictive properties . It stains the teeth and mouth and is associated strongly with cancers of the pharynx.
Next time someone says how wonderful a repository of knowledge the net is ,think of Mr Saliva and ilk and their ability to give pernicious views credence.

It's nice when the usual suspects behave like the usual suspects.
I suppose it's not going to make a difference but antway... worms and autoimmune disease is an interesting hypothesis .;dozens of such are thrown up all the time . It happens that it has seized the imagination of some ,no doubt for its quirkiness .None of this means one should act on it . Can we wait for the double blind placebo controlled trial? Or should we swallow worms straight away because it sounds really beaut. PS Snottiegobble - can you walk us through the thought process that caused you to select your name?

Ok kert - here are the ref's:

http://stm.sciencemag.org/content/current

And here is the (free) podcast - can recommend this segment with Chris Smith - very interesting and easy for everday people to follow.

http://itunes.apple.com/au/podcast/rn-breakfast-science-chris/id285282088

The No.1 podcast (02/12) is the one.

That's all I have time for kert and I am sure u can work out the details for yourself? (but I reckon you might enjoy it, in truth. It also touches on the discovery of that bacteria that lives on arsenic)

The thing about the internet is it gives undue prominence to the bizarre and crazy. Google "Moon Landing" and you get the Psych Ward's conspiratorial rave not factual info. There must be people on this site that know what betel nut does to you and can grasp that a really good anecdote does not constitute adequate evidence for "worm therapy" but they are silenced by the prospect of being shouted down by a bunch of braying, over-confidant ignorami

The level of discussion mimics that which can be found at any "Sportmans' Bar'- loud-mouthed oafs dominating and crowding out anything nuanced or informed. The Bad drives out the Good.
The upshot of this is that I do not wish to engage with the above types and would ask they not respond to my posts . I will do the same . There is no reason for me to "speak" to people who ,under different circumstances , I would cross the road to avoid.

I like the sound of Papua New Guinea grocers as places to buy plants and ingredients, but I have never seen one of these. If I found a Pacific Island grocer with Solomon Islands ingredients, I would buy some ngali nuts (the most melting and creamy textured nut anywhere). I heard a few years ago that someone was intending to commercialize them.

Hey Kert,

I recommend, have a proper read of the details before going on about your jargon of saliva's claims being subject to " Trade Practices Act". saliva indeed was talking about betel leaf and you were talking about the long term effects of betel nut! The nut comes off a palm tree where as the betel leaf, is completely of different species and for your information, it indeed has several medicinal properties claimed, tried and tested for several hundreds of years, including for certain types of cancers and the success was achieved again, based on the malignancy stage!

P.S: Apparent from your previous posts, you are fond of references!! so here's one http://www.ayurvedictalk.com/medicinal-values-of-betel-leaf/1511/

Speaking of "drugs" - what is this "legal marijuana" plant that everyone is talking about? Does anyone know if it is actually a cannabis plant - or is it something else?
I am not interested in using it myself - but I am very curious as to what it is exactly?
(I hope no-one minds me asking this question here...)

Saw something in the newspaper - can't remember it's name now. Out of curiosity I Googled it and it was incredibly expensive. Mind you, I have no idea what marijuana costs, so maybe not.

Interesting that an article warning us about this 'legal' drug gave me info so I could buy it. Probably not the intention!

Well...I thought it might be the Salvia species. ..but that's illegal here (think Miley Cyrus on U Tube - oops!? ...legal in the US but still a "trip")
From what I can gather - legal pot is herbs laced with synthetic cannabinoids that were developed for lab testing re: studying the effects of cannabinoids on the human brain - and 'they' are "legal" (for now) and undetectable - of course - hence the flood into the mining industry - I used to test these guys and the Ministry of Justice clients too...they will go to extraordinary lengths to avoid detection....
To be honest - I know many people are using this stuff - it's called Kronic. The scary thing is that many people are also on antidepressants too.
Whatever - it's their body. If anyone reads this now tho' - maybe stick to the illegal stuff....it is a known quantity (for 100's of years now) IMHO :)

I was just being my usual busy body self, that most of u know by now... ;-)

Ps - it is marketed as "incense" SG. This post will be deleted also (fair enuf' too) I was just interested if it was a bona fide plant species or not. It's always a worry when something is marketed as a "secret ingredient"...?

Xiem - I don't want to be rude - but grow up...? Tobacco is el natural too? The history of tobacco and cannabis is as ancient as each other...from either side of the Pacific. And nicotene was once used exclusively by shamans and considered a spiritual "herb"...So - what happened?
Nature made these plants with these ingredients - not for our exclusive pleasure - but to maim or kill that which would eat them...think about it.

You can smoke Oleander too...but would u?

(ps - the receptors for THC in your brain did not evolve for the plant - they are there for your own bodies natural cannabinoid receptor system...just like u have "natural" receptors for the endorphins and "natural" opiates you produce too... receptor systems don't work quite the way many folk think....eg: the ingredients in many antidepressants target the sites for serotonin uptake - you know those sites were there many thousands of years b4 antidpressants came along....for all we know there could be psychoactive compounds in tea..we just don't have a compatible receptor in our brain for them..)

Ok - off my soap box now.. sorry.

Everything I've ever heard or read about Salvia tells me it's about the worst drug you could ever try. Being slowly unraveled into the dark cold universe until there's nothing left of you which is the typical Salvia trip doesn't sound much fun. A lot of people give up drugs right there and then after that experience

I find it ironic that people who are willing to eat apricot kernels to cure cancer(!) find the thought of using marijuana for medical reasons or pain relief to be a problem. Xiem was an active, polite member of this forum was she not? Seems a shame she is leaving because of the perception of people being nasty on here. I find this forum to be the most helpful, friendly forum on the interwebs(98% of the time), Xiem. Hang around some more. :)

I hope Xiem is only leaving this thread and not the Forum. Some discussions get heated so it is a good strategy to stay away if they get nasty. But Xiem, don't go; as J said, 98% of the time it is a good place to be.

Oh Ratsus, I'm stunned by your repartee. Nonetheless ,if you go to the top of the page you can make out without too much trouble "Daley's Fruit Tree Forum" PS "Forum" is singular if that is the burden of your sophistry.

Rastus, to satisfy kertrs wish that discussion on this forum, maintained by a company that sells fruiting trees, trees used for spices and herbs, be kept to fruiting trees and the fruits they produce only, I could re-direct you to another website where you might be able to discuss these sorts of matters with folks who know a fair bit more about it http://www.shaman-australis.com/forum/

Atta Boy ,Ratsus. I think you've got it. Marijuana is not a fruit and it ain't really about gardening/ It's about getting stoned.

Read the thread ,ratsus. You broke into it to say that it was not correct for me to remind people that it was about fruit, not marijuana. You gave the stunning insight that the forum was about gardening.

Xiem, life is too short & emails tend to appear very abrupt ( you cant see the smile at the other end) so I ask you to reconsider. Unlike one certain other poster who also has no user ID) & constantly gets up everybody`s nose you have a wealth of info to offer this forum so please stay with us!
As for dope well I havent smoked anything at all for 30 years & plan to continue that way, but if I find that marijuana cures IBS I will certainly be having some green cookies!

Sorry - my fault here. I was just hoping that one of our botanical gurus might know what the plant was. I worry about people/friends using something that the producers state is a "secret" ingredient.
Didn't mean to start an argument - please ignore my original question (or feel free to delete) Xiem - sorry also - I thought u must have been taking the mickey with that link - hence my response.

This is my last jab at anyone(unless v. severely provoked ie cancer quacks misusing this site)Truce is a good idea . Most of the phlegm occurs when users decide it is appropriate to let their hobby horse off the leash regardless of its relevance. To show my goodwill I will not share my interpretation of the acronym "IBS" with anyone. Just chortle in private.

My fault there Amanda. I didn't take the time to watch all the video - I thought it was more about the THC-less variety of marijuana. I'll be more careful next time and won't jump in on a thread without doing the homework first.

Yes it is a good forum. I always take interest in food, including the type that grows on trees. . The Garden Web is okay but I tend not to look at that one so much because it is so general. I also like the Taste.com.au website and no doubt a few of the people on this forum also contribute to that, as well as to the Garden Web.

Me 2 Xiem! It's risky -> but I am going to digress here - but the crispy pork belly with caramelised vinegar (using cinnamon, orange and star anise) is my current consuming passion! (happy sigh... :)

There can't be many passionate food growers who are not also dead keen on cooking and eating their efforts surely?

Amanda, my daughter & friends used to pick the blooms from our pineapple sage & suck the sweet nectar from their bases. They are one of the flowers along with borage, nasturtium, calendula & 'johnny jump ups' that you can add to salads to make them more interesting.
Re porkbelly recipes, I hope you saw IRON CHEF this weekend as that was the required ingredient.? 10 amazing recipes & 2 of them in carved out pumkins! It was a draw ( I was waiting for rockwiz)!
As for the psychedelic site well, my Lions ears grew really well in Vic. & there were a number of clowns in the district who would have gladly smoked them had they known!

I think some of the other pipers look very similar but are not the real deal.I know people who have a yard full of the genuine piper for betel nut chewing with mustard sticks or lime.They do pretty well out of them and are way more vigorous than my common standard kitchen pepper.
I think the Mhong people sell a slightly different variety of betel nut piper from the NG people.

Betel nut is NOT illegal in Australia. Actually it is mustard leaf that the nut is chewed with (& lime of course). None of that has anything to do with the leaf that you are talking about. Just clearing that up.

Hi,Tom,
Betel leaves are easily available in

collect a plant with roots.

lol no need to send money to Nigeria or India, Betel is available in most Thai groceries - fresh. Take some home and root them. They grow well in Sydney, mine is spreading and didn't even blink during winter

I did not believe you had Piper betle and then when you wrote did not even blink during winter in Sydney I knew you did not have P. betle.

There is lots of confusion with Piper in Australia.

Hi everyone, Iím moving from New Delhi to Melbourne in few days. Betel is a leaf I like so much and would like to grow it when I come to Melbourne (I grow lots of it here in Delhi). This may really sound off topic but Iím seriously looking for a cheap hotel to stay for few days upon arrival; my living accommodation will be ready perhaps 10days after my arrival. Iím moving in with a 6 year old child and would put comfort first. Our family friend said he used this site http://www.trivago.com.au/melbourne-44314/hotel to book the last time he did visit Melbourne but I wish I could have another choice. Temporary home rental will also be a good option for me. Thanks in advance.

If you move to tropical North Queensland later on you can grow almost anything that grows in India and Sri Lanka.I just returned from Cairns last week and I tasted all the tropical fruits at the Rusty markets including young coconut water, rambuttan, mangoosteen, durian, dragon fruit, mangoes,papaws etc.I also remember seeing betel leaf. It's a tropical paradise. Your chances of growing betel in the cold Melbourne climate would be very difficuilt and would need lots of patience. Anyway try Daleysnursery.com in NSW.

Beware the betel leaf looks very similar to the leaf of the pepper vine and has a thin and shiny surface whereas the pepper vine has pods of green and red pepper hanging in clusters which is dried and used for cooking as black pepper.There are also some other weeds that look very similar to the betel leaf.

Hey guys, I've been reading this forum but I can't keep my head around the numerous varieties of betel leaf, or nut or etc...

All I know is that I want the wild betel leaf - the kind that is used in Malaysian cooking, Malay name is "Daun Kaduk". I believe it is the rounder, more heart shaped one rather than oval shaped.

Does anyone know how I can:
1. Buy the leaves here in Sydney?
2. Buy the plant and grow it in my garden?

Thanks so much for your help!

I have been to many nurseries in Sydney but couldn't find betel leave vine. Last month I found the place in Sydney. The Parklea Market in Blacktown has a fruits and vegetable stalls. I found an Asian vegetable stall. They are selling betel leaves vine in 20cm pots. Healthy plant with well developed roots. I bought a plant for 20$. Very happy with the size of plant and I have started using few leaves every week.it is worth spending a little but I am enjoying paan bida every weekend.

Hi Tom,

I too am from Western Australia. I read your email and you said you were able to purchase some Betel Leaves in WA. Where can I buy some of those leaves so that I can also cultivate a plant? Or will you be able to give me a cutting of your plant?

I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.

Hi Everyone, Ive been reading all the recent post, and i see that alot of questions was asked about the Piper Betel leaf, which is used for chewing in India (Paan) can any one advise if they have found a grower in Australia where they have fresh leaves. I checked the Australia customs requirements to bring some in and let me say too much red tape. If anyone knows of anyone that is growing this plant in Australia please contact me. david_bllstrs@yahoo.com.au

I buy betel leaves from Indian shops and betel nut is also sold in most of the Indian shops in Sydney and I am sure they must be selling it in the indian shops in other Australian cities too. Indians use it as an offering while worshipping God along with betel leaves. But I have never seen a betel leaf plant anywhere here in Sydney.

Hi Monifa, yes I've located 1 person down Sydney way that does grow this plant, but he wasn't able to supply any as he sells/supply most of his leaves to the Indian shops down Sydney. I have obtained 2 plants from Brisbane myself but the are a long way off from being able to be harvested. This is a real hard produce to obtain in Australia.
Thank you for the reply.

I wish these scammers would knock it off...

I got some from a fruit and veg shop and started cuttings in water. Many of them rooted and I'll grow them as house plants.

Try a fruit and veg shop in a Vietnamese area, or even ask at at a Vietnamese restaurant.

Hi Ben,

Yes i know exactly what your saying with people stating they cab supply from over sea. Ive actually located both plants the Vietnamese and the PNG betel plant. The Vietnamese betel grows very easy but the png is very slow but once its established the fruit will be worth the wait.

Cheers and good cooking
