8 fresh plump Bulbs/Corms Water Chestnut w/Growing Guidelines. ▶Ships priority mail within the USA mainland ONLY!◀
Easy to find canned from china - very hard to find fresh bulbs and organically grown bulbs for home gardening and harvest.
Fresh water chestnuts are so much better than canned! Grow your own Water Chestnuts in your pond or bin.
The plants resemble other sedges with numerous upright tubular stems 3-5 feet tall. Underground roots and lateral rhizomes growing from each plant produce other plants and the edible corms. In size and form, the corms resemble gladiolus bulbs, being round, vertically compressed, with a firm, crisp, white interior. Delicious!
Easy to grow in a tub filled with dirt about 4" high . Water to 2" above soil level. Consider appropriate spacing as each corm produces quickly about 8-10 new corms. The closer they sit the harder it is to separate them.
