Please Note: Although many of the traditional Bush Food and Medicine plants are now commercially produced in various forms we recommend you research these before using them as any form of food or medicine. Some parts of the plant may not be edible or some may need preparation before they are safe to eat or use in any way. We do our best to describe their traditional & modern uses. It is the purchaser's responsibility to ensure they are fit for their intended use.
Occurs throughout Southeast Asia and Northern Australia. On the Western Coast of India and in the Andaman area it is commonly grown in the herbal garden.
Prefers well-composted well-drained moist soil in a warm protected position, drought and frost tender.
These seeds have a hard casing, to assist germination it is best to break through that casing to allow moisture to the embryo, without this expect to wait 6 months to 2 years or more until the embryo can imbibe water and start the germination process.
This can be achieved in a number of ways, sanding with coarse sandpaper, filing with a file or cutting with a hacksaw blade.
Our preferred method is the hacksaw as it easily cuts through the hard shell.
