Planting materials of Lagikway will be available at the Sarian Exotic Fruit Trees (SEFT) Farm’s booth at the Horticulture 2014 garden show at the Quezon Memorial Circle in Quezon City from January 24 to February 3, 2014.
The booth is located at the special AANI commercial section of Horti 2014.
Lagikway is an indigenous bush whose leaves are cherished by people in southern Luzon, and some parts of Visayas and Mindanao. They cook it together with other vegetables in such dishes as tinola, sinigang and other preparations. The leaves are also used for wrapping fish cooked as ‘pinangat’ and ‘paksiw.’ The leaves also make very good tempura.
The planting materials will be on a limited scale because there are just about a hundred seedlings available. More will be propagated soon.
Lagikway is a perennial plant so that growers can enjoy its leaves for many years as long as they take good care of their plants.
