Alpinia galanga is a tropical evergreen plant in the ginger family. Growing to 2-3 meters in height, it makes an excellent landscaping plant or large container plant. Greater galangal is intolerant of frost, but is otherwise quite hardy in a range of climates.
Galangal handles heavy rains as well as little rain, but prefers a humid environment. Flowers are delicate white spikes that appear in summer and last 2-4 weeks followed by green fruit maturing to a deep showy red. Flowers are slightly fragrant.
Galangal's most common use is as a food ingredient. With its spicy flavor, it is a must have ingredient for many SE Asian dishes and helps give dishes such as red & green curries their kick.
Kada's Gardens' greater galangal seed rhizomes are sold to both nurseries and farmers. For large commercial operations, please contact us for availability. We can supply approximately 50,000 seed rhizomes per year.
