Description: Galangal is an herbaceous perennial herb native to Southern China and southeast Asia; it grows to a height of 1.5-2 metres. The slender, linear, lanceolate leaves are dark glossy green in colour and smooth with a central midrib and approximately 30cm in length. The flowers form simple, terminal spikes of exotic looking white petals with red streaked markings. The plant is grown for its rhizomes which are highly aromatic and smell like a curious mix of pine and ginger with a pungent peppery flavour.
