Zanthoxylum piperitum v. inerme - BSWJ10934

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
A rare variety of this shrub highly valued in its native Japan, as it looses its spines when mature. We collected the seed of this small to medium sized deciduous dioecious shrub in the Niigata area close to the west coast. With small pinnate highly aromatic leaves to 15cm long with distinctly undulating margins, appearing to have yellow centres when young. Bearing terminal inflorescences of small greenish-yellow flowers April-May, followed by cymes of red fruit which eventually open to reveal the glossy black seed. Sansho, the seed is used as a peppery spice, while the young leaves are used as a paste or garnish. Easily cultivated in part-shade to full sun in a drained fertile soil. ***** ****** ***** ***** These plants are supplied as open ground/bare-rooted plants during the winter.
