***NOT TO TAS***  (Zingiber officinale)  Perennial plant to 1m tall. Tuber with light brown skin & pale cream/yellow flesh. Able to be grown in all light-frost & frost-free areas of Australia.  Sow after frost.  Plant whole tuber in soil with plenty of well rotted manure or compost.  Keep plants well watered & weed free.  Roots reach maturity 9-10 months after planting and may be dug whole or 'bandicooted' as needed.  Whole plant will need to be broken up & divided every 3-4 years.  Clumps are dug, divided & replanted.

Tubers come in large pieces which may be broken up into smaller pieces to create more plants.

Best harvested after plant dies down in Late Autumn / Early Winter or in warmer area, bandicoot tubers as needed. To make ginger powder, simply boil & peel roots, dehydrate & process in blender to form a powder.  High yields.
