Sweet leaf is found growing wild in Malaysia, India, Vietnam, Thailand.

It is a perennial shrub to 2.5m with multiple stems and oval deep green leaves 5cm long.

Sweet leaf tastes like young fresh peas with a slightly nutty flavour.

The dark green leaves are high in protein, and are a rich source of chlorophyll and potassium. The young leaves are eaten raw in sandwiches and salads. The growing tips are often sold as tropical asparagus and are delicious lightly cooked, either steamed or stir fried or added to soups and stews.

Growing Conditions

Sweet leaf tolerates heavy rainfall or dry conditions and will grow in most soil types. It can be grown in sun or dappled shade. Prune hard when tall to promote bushy growth.

Sweet leaf is dormant in the winter and reshoots in spring. Although frost tender, it will sometimes shoot back after heavy frost.

Finally manage to buy this plant. It always sells out very quickly. I try to sow many seeds but never much of a success. This sweet leaf was nurse very well and still growing healthy on my small balcony. I will probably get a few more in future

I was impressed by how fast the plants were delivered. I followed all the instructions to care for the seedlings, but unfortunately they were dying within a couple of days after they arrived

I have purchased many seedlings from Mudbrick Herb Cottage over the years and recently purchased Sweet Leaf seedlings. They were very well packed and very healthy looking plants. They have taken off very well too. Would highly recommend this site to my friends.
