According to information on the web it can help to regulate blood sugar and also reduce blood pressure.
It is quite easy to grow as even in the Winter it has survived on my windowsill which faces south but doesn’t get much sun until the Spring.
These are the tops off the two cuttings I bought.
The original plants are now ‘branching out’ and growing apace .
It seems you can’t buy seeds but can only grow it from cuttings.
So, what is it like to eat?
Well, I nip off a leaf from time to time and it tastes quite pleasant and refreshing with just a hint of ‘hotness’.
As for reducing bloodpressure, well I don’t know as I think you’d have to eat more leaves on a regular basis and I don’t want to strip my little plants bare until they really have taken off.
