Curcuma longa
Member $9.95
Non-Member $12.95
A popular superfood that will grow in any frost-free area in Australia (and even in areas where frost is very light). Canna-like leaves emerge from the rhizome during spring (year round in the tropics). Tubers are mild when dug during the growing season, stronger when dug after the leaves have died down in the autumn. A very productive plant, producing a bucketful of harvestable roots from one rhizome in a single growing season.

Corn 'Ontos Oval White Popcorn'
Corn 'Ontos Oval White Popcorn'
SEEDS: S107
An Australian heirloom white popcorn brought to our shores by Fred Koch from Arkansas, USA in 1974. A white corn which Fred says "is all puff with no rough", the oval shaped white corn kernels have less fibrous matter at the base, giving your fluffy white popcorn, perfect for the sprinkle of salt or daub of butter.
