The James Wong Collection - Perfect to add to salads and garnish meats, especially for a BBQ. Actually, a type of mahogany tree which can be grown as a baby leaf veg. Plants can be grown on if given winter protection for the first 2 years, then new growth can be harvested each spring.

The plant, in addition to having tasty spring shoots, is also a stunningly beautiful garden tree with peeling bark, rich green leaves and fragrant flowers that the bees just love. Harvest January-December. Height 301cm+ (9'10"+); spread 301cm + (9'10"+).

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.

Growing Information

Sow seeds in trays or pots of good quality compost around 5cm apart in good quality compost all year round. Keep on a sunny windowsill or propagator at 18-21º. When big enough to handle, transplant individual 10cm pots and grow on indoors. Plants can be overwintered indoors and planted out in the garden next spring if larger plants are required.
