The heaviest Veggie in the world..

>> Thursday, June 18, 2009

Hola. Its me on the go again. Just been in one of those days where sometimes one needs a break and now back to life again. Hope you all are happy with your greens despite of this hot and dry weather especially here in Malaysia where El Nino is expected to come soon. Keningau has just received its rain yesterday after almost a week of scorching hot weather. Its definitely way too hot for the greens to have their sunbathing!
A green riddle in the middle of June.
'What's the heaviest veggie in the world?' A big cabbage? a big broccoli? you can answer all you like but the thing is the 'tutan' is the heaviest veggie in the world. Why? because its weigh two ton (tutan) get it? Lol.
These are the pictures of the veggie 'Tutan" a local veggie but it might have other names in your places. I was thinking Im growing a chilli plant when the tutan was still small. The tutan taste like any leafy veggie but has a little bit bitter kind of thing but not bitter like the bitter gourd. Its actually a wild veggie that has been commercialised in my place. I hope some will come up with another name soon.

kinda like a chilli plant for me
revealed its true self ..The tutan but not the Titans :P

Titan sounds like something big also ;-D HELLO! thanks for dropping by my blog. Frankly, I have not heard of tutan before. But if you are growing it, I am sure it is one your favourite. Must be a good plant. Happy gardening!

Tutan is a local veggie here and it just grow and pop up there. At first I thought it was a chilli plant as it grows next to two chilli plants. Tutan wont last long so the moment you get it you have to cook it as it wilted faster. Happy gardening to you too.

Bangchik and Kakdah,
Yes and I have lots of readings to catch up. Infact I managed to read only three new posts of yours. Wantan mee? yes Keningau got that if you want to try one.

Glad to see you back in the blogger world again!! Hope you have recovered well.

Thanks for leaving your comment on my blog. For your question on where to get the mulberry plants, I only know where to get it in Klang Valley, not in Keningau. Sorry about that.

I got one of mine from the Bandar Harapan Organic Farm in Ara Damansara. You can contact Ivan Ho at 019-3751382 or Saktivelu at 012-3331341 or visit their website on how to get to the farm:

Or try to contact Danny (Mobile: 016-2785961) who has a plant booth on Sundays at Amcorp Mall. Ask him if he has this plant. He sells many kind of herbs at his booth.
