Wasabi Plant

Wasabi Plant £7.99
Did you know that most of the Wasabi we eat in the UK is actually a bogus concoction of mustard and horseradish?In fact, real Wasabi tubers lose their potent flavour within a day of being grated and cost an arm and a leg, hence the cheap mustard imitation! So growing your own is the perfect way to ensure you get an authentic Japanese experience.As well as the potent stem, the beautiful lily pad shaped leaves have a gentler wasabi tang and are fantastic wrapped around raw or smoked salmon with pickled ginger and a slick of cream cheese; exotic hors doeuvres your friends will never have tried before!Wasabi positively prefers overcast, damp, chilly weather, perfect!
