Khasya Trichodesma (Trichodesma khasianum or Trichodesma calycosum) seeds. 假(甲)酸漿or碧果草的種子.


Tropical sub-shrub with large edible leaves.  Native in southeast of Asia, south China and Taiwan.  The tender leaves are edible straight or cooked (as food wrap, wrap with rice, taro and meat inside).  As leafy vegetable is good for digestion.  Stems are covered with short fine hair.  Easy to grow.  Best growing in partial shade location.  Small white/pink bell shaped flowers in clusters in late spring to early summer.  Medicinal.   USDA Zonese:9-10.  Mature size:7′-10′(H/W).  Propagate by seeds.

 “多年生灌木,高可達2~3公尺假酸漿多年生灌木,高可達2~3公尺,全株密被短毛。單葉;對生,具葉柄,柄長1~2公分;葉片長10~25公分,寬5~15公分,橢圓形,全緣,上表面粗糙。花序為圓錐花序,花軸長,頂生;苞片披針形,花萼5裂,卵狀披針形;花冠5裂,闊卵形,先端反捲;柱頭球形。果實為小堅果,球形,熟時淡紫色。花期3~5月。
假酸漿產於臺灣中低海拔平野及山區,惟山區生長者葉片較大而濃綠。此植物葉片為原住民常用食材,節慶時利用其葉片包裹於蒸粿糕食品(A Bai),其含大量植物纖維有助於消化,是較特別的用法。食用時連葉片一起食用,具有淡淡清香味,此等作法與利用月桃或香蕉葉當襯底者不同,另有一番風味。"

–Plant is very prolific, this plant has 7 large fruit and many small ones so far. 這品種生很多,光這株有7個較大的果,還有許多小的.


Annual fruit. Easy to grow. Best in full sun location. Small yellow flowers blooming in summer to fall. Prolific.

I like this variety is small enough and faster to mature due to the wild animals disturbance.

Mature size:1.5′-2′(H)X 4′-6′(W). Open pollinated. Propagate by seeds.
