Rungia klossii is a fast grower bushy herb, common named ‘Mushroom Plant’ due to its leaves special mushroom flavor! The glossy green leaves have a crispy texture, similar to spinach and can be eaten raw in tossed salad, tucked into a sandwich or use as a great garnish, and contain large amounts of iron, Vitamin C and beta carbonate. The mushroom flavor increases with cooking (in soups or stews), but pay attention- over cooking can make the leaves lose their bright color, so it is recommended to add it at the last minute of cooking. The mushroom plant likes to grow in warm conditions, preferably in shade.
