Myoga Ginger 1/10

White4350's Edible Fruits
Update: 2960 days 7hrs

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.

Chilli - Rocoto Tree (Seedling) 3/10

White4350's Edible Fruits
Update: 2960 days 7hrs

Comments: -

This cheerful shrub grows rapidly and responds to TLC but do not over-fertilise as with all capsicums / chilis. This produces all leaf and no fruit. The fruit is a good, medium hot, fleshy chili. Good for drying and powdering, or blending with vinegar, salt and oil, for a great chili paste. Easy propagation by seed which is black.

Horseradish (Cutting)

White4350's Edible Fruits
Update: 2960 days 7hrs

Comments: -

     Easy to grow. Needs only ordinary soil, thrives on neglect but a good watering when very dry is a help. Lift large roots, scrub clean of dirt and skin, grate, add salt and white vinegar for a hot spicey horseradish. Blend radish root with salt and cream for a rich horse radish cream. A blend of chili, garlic, ginger and horseradish, makes a great marinade for fish, pork and roast beef. A real sinus cleanser when suffering from colds and flu. Propagate via root cuttings, plant a few inches below the surface, water in well.
