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.

Alpinia Caerulea

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/
