When we ask people to try this plant the main reaction we get is "WOW, that's amazing"

If you love Mushrooms you can not afford not to buy this plant. The leaves have a fantastic mushroomy (no idea if that is a word)  taste and are also very good for you.

The plant is nice and easy to grow in the garden or a pot. Although it is not frost hardy, you can bring it in during the winter and grow it in a light spot.

Rungia Klossii 

About Mushroom Leaf: An unusual and very popular herb with a fast-growing, upright, bushy habit. Its attractive, glossy green foliage contains large amounts of iron, vitamin C and beta carbonate and has a taste uncannily similar to mushrooms. The leaves have a crispy texture similar to spinach and can be eaten raw added to a salad or anywhere you want to add a mushroom flavour without the mushroom texture. The flavour can be increased by cooking the leaves making this an ideal herb for adding to soups and stews however the leaves can lose their bright green colour if overcooked. A must-have for any culinary herb grower. 


Pot sizes explained

At Newlands Nursery we grow and sell plants in a variety of different sizes, from small starter plants up to planted containers. 

We know it can be tricky to picture the size of each plant. This page gives you an idea of the size of the plants we are sending out.

Please keep in mind that plants vary from one season to the next. The size of the plant refers to the pot or plug it is grown in, rather than the height of the plant, unless specifically mentioned on the plant page.

Starter Plant (Plug Plant)

Plug Size: 2cm by 4cm. Our most popular size. This is often the most economical way of buying plants and is a great way to get a head start on the season. Generally this size is best to be potted up before planting out.
