Its Latin name of Rungia klossii is a bit of a mouthful but the wonderful taste of this extremely unusual herb is what gives it the more easily digestible common name of Mushroom plant.
The bright and glossy leaves of this tender perennial give a real hit of mushroom flavour, which is further intensified when cooked. Use in salads where it also add crisp texture, or in casseroles or other hot dishes where just a few leaves can add that incredible earthy richness. Perfect for those who love the flavour- but not the texture- of mushrooms, and a real talking point. Exceptionally high in vitamin C, iron and protein. And as if that’s not enough, it’s an attractive plants in its own right, with a combination of shiny leaves, sometimes with yellow markings, and delicate violet flowers making it worthy of a prominent place on your patio. Thrives in moist but well-drained conditions in a warm, sunny position.
