Due to the cold snap, the Torch Ginger flowers are currently small shoots, and slow growing. We have decided to hold off orders until Spring (August 2020).
Torch Gingers are usuallu harvested fresh to order from Queensland every two weeks (dates below), or when cumulative orders reach 1kg. No stock is kept on hand. You will be notified when ready for pick-up/delivery.
Why frozen or dried when you can have fresh fragrant torch ginger flower herbs for your cooking? Pre-order fresh Queensland-grown torch ginger from us to add an exquisite aromatic note to your dishes. The fragrance from these fresh edible Red Torch Ginger (Etlingera elatior) flowers add to depth of flavour to Malaysian Nyonya, Thai or Indonesian cuisine - or any cuisine if you feel that creative streak. Also known as Bunga Kantan in Malay, this flower is added to dishes like Assam Laksa, Nasi Ulam, Kerabu, Asam Pedas, Sambal Bunga Kantan and Nyonya Laksa.
While known in various parts of Indonesia as bunga kecombrang, bunga honje, rias or kencong, the white part of stem is used for cooking Sambal Bongkot, and the flower buds to make Sambal Kecicang or Sambal Matah.
Up to now, some of our Sydney clients have been using imported frozen flowers for their culinary use. These fresh exotic Australian-grown Torch Ginger Flowers are nurtured in a pesticide-free farm in Queensland.
Price is per stalk, 30cm long, approximately 90-100g per flower. For wholesale enquiries, please contact us directly.
