We’ve decided to do an experiment this year and try and grow asian water chestnuts (Eleocharis dulcis).
Since our local grocery store doesn’t normally carry live water chestnuts, I special ordered 10 pounds of them from our local produce manager. We’re splitting the order with a couple other friends.
Hopefully we will see some growth starting in a week or so. I sampled a couple last night from the ones left over after planting about 120. I just peeled the skins off and ate them raw… so much better than canned!
