Nutty, asparagus-flavoured pods - extremely popular in the Mediterranean and an expensive delicacy in Australia. This delicious, ornamental plant is so easy to grow and cook – try it sautéed, steamed, stir-fried, battered and deep-fried, or pickled. The scarlet flowers are a beautiful garnish. Pick pods when young before they become fibrous. Grows to approx 20-50cm high.
