Product Description

Edible, Easy-Growing & Non-Invasive Bamboo

Why Edible Bamboo Plants?

Known as the Male Bamboo or Calcutta Bamboo, the Edible Bamboo Plant is valued for its incredibly fast growth and unique form. And since it's perfect for growing and preparing a one-of-a-kind culinary treat, it lives up to its name!

Simply pick your young bamboo shoots, bring them indoors to boil and prepare, and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Edible Bamboo has a delectable flavor unlike any other and is perfect for adding to a number of recipes.

Even better? It's non-aggressive and non-invasive. It won't run all over your yard and it's ideal for small spaces, from urban patios to containers on your porch. That means you can experience the delight of home-grown bamboo without hassle or fuss.

Plus, it's tolerant of cold and heat. This is perhaps the easiest-to-grow bamboo variety available. It's even tolerant of harsh sunlight, heat and drought conditions. Unlike other needy varieties, it won't shrivel up and die back when faced with tough landscape issues.

Why is Better

You won't find this unique variety at your local garden center. With the Edible Bamboo, not only will you get a one-of-a-kind plant that's second to none...but you also get a promise of fast, easy growth and no-nonsense care.

As this unique bamboo grows in popularity, we will quickly run low on quantity, so don't wait...order your Edible Bamboo today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Plant your Edible Bamboo in an area that's protected from high winds and receives full to partial sunlight (anywhere from 4 to 6 hours of sunlight daily).

The Edible Bamboo will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well-draining.

Once you've selected your location, dig a hole large enough to accommodate your Edible Bamboo Plant's root ball, plant your Bamboo and backfill the soil.

2. Watering: Depending on your climate, water your Bamboo at least twice weekly. If you're not sure when to water, simply check your surrounding soil about 2 or 3 inches down.

3. Fertilizing: Early every spring and fall, feed your Edible Bamboo with a slow-release fertilizer that's high in nitrogen.

Note: Ensure you cook bamboo before eating as it contains toxic levels of glycosides.

New bamboo

I bought 4 plants to add to our edible landscaping. They arrived in good order and I am looking forward to this spring for the first harvest. I buy many things from Fast Growing Trees and have had good success all around. Definitely a return buyer.

Edible bamboo and Tricolor willow

I am very pleased with my plants (2 tricolor willows, 1 edible bamboo). They arrived when they were promised, packaged well and in great condition. I have been trying to get tricolor willow bushes for quite some time but the garden centers either don’t carry them or they are sold out. I couldn’t believe FastGrowing Trees had them readily available. I definitely recommend this company, I just wish I had more room to plant. Hmmm, maybe we don’t need so much grass?
