Many people mistaken this plant as Ashitaba. This plant is actually called Gynura Procumbens. The true Ashitaba ( Tomorrow Leaf ) will be available soon. Stay tuned. :)

This is a very low maintenance, fast growing herb/vegetable that can be grown indoor and outdoor. The purpose of this plant is to incorporate it into your diet for a healthy life. As many generations of African and Asians have done traditionally. This plant is used as an herbal dietary supplement to help decrease cholesterol, blood glucose, hypertension, rheumatism, viral ailments, and other illnesses.

The leaves are picked for salads, soups, or sauteed them to make a dish. They are also be made as tea and extract.

Just keep in mind that this is just like any vegetables you buy at the market except this one has a lot of medicinal properties. So just be creative like you would with any of the vegetables!

Here are some dishes to share with you:

In Southern California, I have one growing in a 2 ft x 1 ft area, and it grows fast enough to provide my small family to pick weekly. It's enough for us to make a salad, and soup about 2 or 3 times a week. This plant loves moist soil, and does well in full sun, partial sun/partial shade, filtered light. In colder climate, this plant can be grown indoor by the window, but will be a bit slower growing.

"I was so impressed with the packing - potting soil taped over to prevent spilling, skewers to prevent crushing. Needless to say, the plant arrived safely! Thank you!"

"Great seller! Excellent product! I ordered on Wednesday night, and it was shipped the following day. The plants I ordered are gorgeous and exceeded my expectations. These are best plants I've ordered online and I have ordered from big costly online nurseries that cannot compare. Thank you so much. I truly will be enjoying these plants."
