I bought a house in September 2020. A clean pallet for another 15 years as I’ve recently left my tropical garden in Brisbane and moved to Ipswich.

@geehawker thanks Gerard. Lucky shot from last year. We need a repost button to show new friends old pics.

I keep meaning to change botanical name. Needed reminding 🤓. When do you pick and eat? @nej
"The new leaf shoots and berries have a mild ginger flavour and can be used in cooking, or eaten fresh from the plant." http://www.gardeningwithangus.com.au/alpinia-caerulea-native-ginger/
I don't know when to pick and eat but I think what @brightcolours posted might be interesting
Flowers turn to seeds.
@nej native ginger if that's alpina
@nej swipe to next pic
Yes Alpinia Caerulea
@nej this variety isn't in encyclopaedia
You could place it under a new entry
