Wasabi Growing Trial — the Attempt to Grow in Southern California
Wasabi (wasabia japonica), a rare culinary ingredient once said to only grow in specific areas of Japan. With known success of growing wasabi throughout the world, we are going to give this plant a go.
Today we received via parcel three wasabi plant starts. They have been planted in pond that mimics the plant’s natural environment– a stream bed. With much optimistic and with luck, perhaps we too may be able to grow this lovely plant.
