Myriopteron extensum - Myriopteron extensum


Out of stock

10 seeds per pack. A branching rain forest liana, native from India, through China and into southeast Asia. It bears uniquely shaped, prominently ribbed, green colored fruits. Some sources mention the fruits are specially prepared and eaten as a vegetable, but they may not be edible in raw form. The plant has come under much recent study for its roots, which may contain a novel sweetening compound that is many times sweeter than sucrose. Likely not frost tolerant. #4660
