Wasabi

    7 responses

Linton starts with ...
Wasabi survived Summer in Melbourne!

Not only did it survive, it is still flourishing. All I did was to sit the pots in a tub of water and put them under a bush all Summer and then just forgot about them.

The large mature leaves are very tasty and quite hot to eat but unfortunately the insects seem to like munching on them as well and nothing I do can keep the bugs from getting at them.

I'm hoping they will produce some baby plantlets soon which can be divided from the parent plant to grow more or offer to others.

Baby Wasabis shooted out from the parent plant.

Here are some pictures of some Baby Wasabis that grew from one of the larger plants I have been growing. So I took them out and replanted in their own pots.

The fresh leaves are nice to pick and eat too, don't have to wait for the rhizome to form. And they really like the cold conditions.....no need to molly coddle them at all!

A couple of places currently have Wasabi plants in stock. Diggers Club and All Rare Herbs. All Rare Herbs are not in Melbourne but do mail order. You can order online from both suppliers and they will both mail out plants as far as I know.

Cheers!

Wasabi Plants for sale SE Melbourne

I currently have a few spare Wasabi plants of advanced size for sale. As you might know, Wasabi is a spicy herb and the rhizome is used in Sushi and seafoods. All parts of the plant are edible. The leaves can be used in a salad, the stems are delicious raw.

They would need to be picked up from Noble Park as postage would not be possible for these plants. Prices are $15 for 20cm pot and $20 for 30cm pot. Please contact me if interested thanks. lintonius at hotmail dot com
