Chinese Keys Potted or Tubers


Chinese Keys – Potted plant or Tubers  (Seasonal)

25 in stock


Krachai / Chinese Keys/ Kachai/ Finger Root, Boesenbergia rotunda is another wonderful edible addition from the Asian cornucopia.
It is remarkably easy to grow and easy to harvest in late Autumn and Winter.
As a very close relative of Ginger it grows very well as a companion plant for Ginger and Turmeric because it is lower in structure and looks wonderful layered in front.
Brilliant as a edible around the pool.
We do not sell the bare root during winter as the success rate for striking is usually low.
Potted plants are available during winter but these will naturally be dormant.

Potted Plant  (Sept – May)
Several Dormant Tubers  (June – Oct)

Some plants are planted seasonally, as their nature demands.
These will therefore only be available while they last, as we try not to plant more than will survive in a condition appropriate to be mailed out with the greatest chance of survival.
If we are out of stock (especially annuals or decidious plants), we will not be selling again until the time is right for the particular plant, once again.
This may be up to 8 months, depending on the plant.
