Beef and Onion plant (also known as Toona sinensis of Chinese mahogany) brings one of the most unexpected flavours to your taste buds that you have ever dreamed possible from a plant. This truly amazing plant delivers the same flavour as a packet of beef and onion crisps. First you experience the taste of mild onion without the heat, followed by a rich gravy taste that floods your mouth with a real depth of flavour, all from a rather pretty deep green small leaf.

The young lush leaves of this plant are extensively used as a vegetable in China. You can either pick the leaves as they shoot or let the plant develop into a tree and harvest the young leaves each year. Whichever you choose, you will be amazed by what you taste.
