The Variegated Katuk is your favorite Katuk but with unique varying color zones and markings on its leaves. Katuk is a heat-tolerant survival plant that thrives with no irrigation & no need for fertilizers or amendments of any kind. It is a perennial vegetable, meaning that in warm climates - it will continue to produce year after year without the need for replanting.

It provides sustenance to many dishes around the world in tropical/subtropical climates. Did we mention the nutty flavor is similar to peas or peanuts?

*Shipping Plants: 
-Stress- Shipping can cause stress to a plant, mostly because it spends a few days in a dark stuffy box. Most of plants survive with no problems or with a minimal stress (some leaf drop may occur), and recover quickly others may require extra love and attention with watering and gentle light after unboxing.
-Physical damage- Sometimes a carrier may damage boxes during handling.
It does not happen often as we try to pack your plants with extra special attention but unfortunately there are some things beyond our control.  In cases of serious damage, only the carrier can be responsible for it- so please contact the carrier within 30 days to start a claim. If it's just a broken branch or even part of a stem - just let it grow, take care of your plant and it will respond to your love. We understand your frustration if damage occurs, and strive to do everything we can on our end to minimize all damage and stress on the plant
