Button Mangosteen or Cherapu (Garcinia praniana) seeds in coco peat. 椰殼粉中的鈕扣山竹的種子.

Tropical fruit.  Easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun location.  Small red/orange male and female flowers in spring.  Fruit ripe from green to orange.  The ripe fruit has thin peel compare with regular mangosteen.  The fruit is tasty sweet-sour and very juicy!  Very similar with tangerine.  Seed is easy to be seperated from the flesh which it is very different from the regular mangosteen.  USDA Zones:10-11.  Mature size:20′-40′(H/W).  Propagate by seeds, cuttings or air layering.  Suitable for growing in containers, plant can flower and fruit when just few feet tall.  Slow growth.

熱帶水果.  容易栽種.  最好栽種在全日照處.  春開紅/橘色雄花與雌花.  果實成熟會由綠轉為橙色.  果皮比一般山竹要薄許多,種子和一般山竹相比也較容易和果肉分離.  果肉跟一般山竹一樣味道酸甜多汁! 頗接近橘子的味道和口感.  喜熱不耐寒.  成熟株高/寬幅20-40呎.  繁殖以種子,扦插或高壓的方式來進行. 不同於山竹這種適合盆植,植株矮矮幾呎高便能開花結果了.  生長緩慢.

American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) has young leaves and flower stem forming. 花旗蔘盆植的植株長出新葉與花莖.

Open to check the ginseng roots.  There are 6 roots, 3 thicker ones and 3 skinner ones.  You can see to compare with my thumb.  I must say these good looking produce for CDN$8.99 is excellent!   Great for ginseng root chicken soup…  Or my planting experiment!  Let’s the fun begins!  🙂

超市買的花旗蔘鮮品一盒共6根. 打開看看有3大3小…品質不錯並聞起來有明顯的蔘味.  一盒加幣8.99元,價錢不錯! 燉煮人蔘雞湯不錯!…  或者當我的種植實驗品!  照片中每根你都可以見到甦醒的綠色的葉芽.

Mature size:12″-18″(H) X 6″-9″(W). USDA Zones:4-7. Best growing them in shade in moist organic acidic soil.  Pale green flowers in late spring follow by red fruit.  Culinary and medicinal herb.  The harvested size for selling in the market is usually 5 years old.

成熟株高12-18吋,寬幅6-9吋.  很耐寒不耐熱也不耐乾旱.  以種植在散光或全蔭處為佳,喜酸性濕潤,富含天然腐殖質的土壤. 春末開淡綠色花後結紅色的果實.  兼具食用及藥用的植物.  市面上買到的通常是採收的5年參.

It is a slow growing medicinal perennial, often 5 years old plant only grow up to 4-prong (4 leaves stage) so next time when you consume ginseng you should appreciate this gift from the nature!

它是的生長速度非常緩慢的多年生藥草, 5年生常只有長到4片掌狀葉. 所以下次當你飲用/食用花旗參時,更要感謝這來自大自然的禮物!
