Why we love this product!

An understory plant that creates a cool microclimate for frogs and provides nesting material for the leaf cutter fly. The young growing tips of the creeping rhizome can be eaten raw or cooked. Raw they are crunchy and refreshing with a mild ginger taste and in cooking they can be used as a ginger substitute with a milder, less spicey taste. The fruit is ripe when it’s blue and the casing should be peeled off. The white pulp that surrounds the seeds is edible and has a pleasant zesty taste. There’s a lot of seeds and not much pulp so sucking off the flesh is just a taste. The leaves can be used for wrapping food for cooking to impart a slight gingery taste, they’re perfect for fish.
