WANTED: Potato Mints (Plectranthus esculentus & P. edulis)
« on: July 27, 2017, 12:05:58 AM »
Hi all. I already have Plectranthus rotundifolius in my possession. I'm looking for P. esculentus (rather hard to find), and P. edulis (from Ethiopia; practically impossible to find). From what I can tell, both have long tubers, in contrast with P. rotundifolius 's compact tubers. Is there anyone here able and willing to sell me rooted cuttings from either of these two species?

While I'm asking, how do you prepare the tubers for cooking? They seem small... ¿are they peeled, or is their skin tender? ¿What about for boiling? ¿Or frying?
