Here are some photos,for all my friends~~~~
Amy,here are the different types of persimmons,that I told you about.....the longish type is very bitter,onli used in making dried sweet ang ki.
Next are the wasabi plants,fresh~They looks the same like ginger,you need to scrape then to eat in your sushi or sashimi.
Next is the Natto.They are the fermented beans.They are very rich in vitamins and have an enzyme which could slow down aging.So all you ladies who would like to stay young looking should try this...hehe...
You can eat it with raw egg mixed in ,or make it with fried rice.Or you can just add a bit of soya sauce ,but be sure to stir it many times to get the sticky mixture.Then it is ready to be eat...

I saw it somewhere that they grew it in a clear water river for the wasabi plant.

I love the ang khi. It is one of my ....., it is my favourite fruit. Didn't know that they comes in more than just the round shape.
