Harvesting: The Mushroom plant can be harvested all year round, but the best is to harvest during the active growth period to provide a bushy growth.
Uses: In the kitchen it's used in salads, soups and wok dishes, a small cooking even increases the mushroom aroma.
Frosts: Low frosts are tolerated but lead to leaf loss.
What is it exactly and why is it called mushroom plant.

Perhaps you don’t like them at all.
Here’s a way to enjoy the taste without the texture and it’s all natural.

Mushroom plant is a perennial that although it grows well in tropical and sub-tropical areas, it needs protection from frost in cooler climates.
The best way to grow it there is in a pot, which by the way, has served me well over the years.
