Wholesale - Please Login For Pricing

  • Model: HERBRBP


Piper auritum, large rounded and tipped, course-like leaves. When the velvety, heart-shaped leaves, which can get up to 12"wide, are crushed or rubbed, they smell(that's aroma flavoring for culinary purposes) like ROOTBEER!! To "step up" your "plating" this is a must! The #1 Mexican cuisine for tamales, fish or meat wrapped in the fragrant leaves for cooking, and THE ESSENTIAL INGREDIENT in Mole Verde!(the green sauce that originated in Oaxaca region of Mexico). It is also used to flavor soups, such as pozole, and eggs. In central Mexico it is used to flavor chocolate drinks. In southeastern Mexico, a green liquor called Verdin is made from the ROOT BEER LEAF. it is also used for tea. There is an American Cheese called "Hoja Santa Cheese" where goat cheese is wrapped with the LEAF and is impreganated(infused) with its ROOT BEER FLAVOR! For us "wanna-be-great-cooks", a weekly use of the leaf is to simply WRAP a LEAK around a chicken breast, or fish filet(Talapia,Salmon)and wha-laa, Mmmm,Mmmm, delicious! and smiles on all guests faces with the intrigue of GREAT CUISINE! Easy to grow in a container where you can get up to 4-6'ft! Bright light indoors and take it out during summer and you'll be "Leafing(Laughing)All The Way" during the winter months with "Bobtails Swinging"! This is one of those THRILLING HERBS, where when you use a LEAF you feel like you've turned your GREEN thumb into GOLD! To expand your palate flavor thinking, the leaf's flavor and aroma have been compared to: licorice, sassafras, anise, nutmeg, mint, tarragon, black pepper, and eucalyptus. zone 8-11. Native to South America thru Mexico and cultivated in southeastern Florida.
