Now you can grow fresh ginger right in your home. Big Kahuna ginger is a high-yielding variety with a bright flavor that adds just the right amount of heat and spice to sauces, soups, marinades, baked goods and more. Grow in pots – outside in filtered sunlight in summer and bring inside for the winter. Begin to harvest roots in 2 years – just reach into the pot and break off what you need. Ginger is a heavy feeder and an even heavier drinker that needs a lot of room to grow. Choose a pretty container with good drainage holes and a deep saucer.
