I have never heard of this herb before now. It was at our local Canadian Wholesale Club grocery store.
Rungia klossil ~ Mushroom Plant Rungia
It is supposed to have a mushroom flavour. Not to my palate. Tastey like Green Beans to my daughters and I. Taste good but definitely not mushroom flavoured.
It is high in iron, calcium and beta-carotene and vitamin c. Excellent in salads and as a cooking green. The mushroom taste is supposed to increase with cooking. I haven’t cooked with it yet.
It grows anywhere between 12-24″ tall. Zone 7-10 (Papua New Guinea). Tolerates drought but grows best with regular watering.
I will update more on this herb once it has grown more and I have used it as a cooked greens or in stirfry.
