Sauropus androgynus

Sweet Leaf Bush, Katuk

Sauropus androgynus


Culturally, sweet leaf bush has been a popular leafy vegetable in Southeast Asia. It was added to salads and stir-fry for its sweet, nutty flavor and high nutritional value.

Recently, it has been discovered that consuming large amounts of it can cause serious ill effects, including an incurable lung disease. In Taiwan, it is now banned for human consumption. The regional government of Hong Kong also advises against consumption, especially raw, the juice, or in large amounts.

We have a few plants available that might be of interest for use in an ethnobotanical display, for research purposes, or for the horticulturally curious. We do not recommend it for consumption. Grows 3 to 9 feet. Sun or part shade, adequate moisture. USDA zones 11 - 12. Native to South East Asia. Phyllanthaceae (previously in the Euphorbiaceae family)
