Asian Vegetables

A Guide to Growing Fruit, Vegetables and Spices from the Asian Subcontinent

by Sally Cunningham

"Up to now there's been a lack of an accessible book on the various Indian vegetables, fruit and herbs which appear in the markets and Asian greengrocers... Sally Cunningham has done a painstaking job - often talking to the older generation of Asians. She has also tried to grow them herself so the practical information is detailed and has the stamp of authority that only comes from first hand experience."

Joy Larkcom, author of Oriental Vegetables and Creative Vegetable Gardening, among others

"Asian Vegetables" is a unique and fascinating book that broadens the kitchen gardener’s horizons and genuinely says something new.

"Asian Vegetables" brings together a wealth of information on over 40 varieties of fruit, vegetables and spices that are grown on the Indian subcontinent and form a distinctive part of the unique cuisine in that part of the world.

Each plant comes together with details of what to look for when buying, the different varieties available, their nutritional value, comprehensive cultivation instructions, useful colour photographs and much more. Most can be grown almost anywhere, though some will grow best and thrive in the warmer, wetter parts of this country. The author Sally Cunningham has personally researched, grown, cooked and eaten every plant mentioned in this book.

With this unique guide both the experienced gardener and those new to growing will bring variety and a fresh, new dimension to the food on their plates and the plants in their garden.
