• Ginger Root (Mission) Unusual Vegetables


We have been asked for a long time to supply locally grown ginger root for planting.


Mission Ginger is a light fleshed ginger that has slightly milder yet more complex flavour profile.

This is a great ginger for milder Asian fish and vegetarian dishes and with it's crisp mouthfeel, is superb for for candied or ginger preserves.


Our Ginger is ready to plant and will probably have a few eyes by the time you receive it.

Best grown in light or partial shade.

Plant in well improved soil with added bonemeal (Talborne's BonePhos is perfect) and keep well watered but not constantly wet.

If you are in a frost region, then plant in pots so that they can overwinter indoors on a sunny windowsill.

The plant get to about 1m tall and has stunning flowers! Once the flowers have died down, it's time to look at lifting your crop.

Lift the roots, rinse them and clean with a soft brush and allow to dry in a cool place. Use the damaged pieces first.


P.S. save some for replanting, you will never need to buy imported (or unknown origin) ginger in the shops again.
