About 4 years ago I bought this Wasabi plant
at the garden centre RHS Wisley, A little research showed me that it does best in shady wet areas, so I placed it under a dripping tap against a North Wall and it was doing fine.
Wasabi is the prized condiment Japanese Horseradish. These roots make a strong horseradish sauce that you see in little packets when you buy sushi. So I've waited 4 long years for it to show any fruit or flower... but when I peeked into my Winter greenhouse this morning.... all that waiting has come to fruit!
Finally I have Wasabi nuts on the plant! I am thrilled to pieces! Gorgeous, tasty horseradish flavoured nuts have finally appeared on my Wasabi plant!
I will enjoy these little wasabi nuts this evening with a glass of chilled champagne before I sit down to my special April 1st evening meal. MATRON IS BACK!¬
