Wild Ginger

Wild Ginger

Native Ginger is found in tropical rainforest areas. At the base of the plant are the young tips of an underground stem which appear from November to April. The plant produces edible blue berries which can be eaten raw. The tips (which grow to 10cm) contain a seedy pulp which tastes like fruit salad. The seeds are crushed and used as a spice. You can use the leaves to wrap food prior to cooking.
