Hubei 3 Edible Lotus - Delicious!


We have run out of stock for this item.

Nelumbo nucifera




Hubei #3 is one of the most popular vegetable tubers in China.  The tubers are organically grown with no prohibited chemicals added.

Hubei #3 will be shipped as a starter with one or two growth tips so do not be surprised by the size when you receive it. Plant it in a large pot, or better yet, an earth-bottom pond. Harvest in the late fall or winter. We suggest planting them in a 5' diameter plastic kiddie pool. They look especially nice when the pool is recessed in the ground. Also, the pools are inexpensive so that if it is damaged during harvest it is easy to replace.

Flower Color: Creamy White with Pink
Plant Height: Tall, 48” and taller
Flower Type: Semi-Double, 21-50 petals
Pot Size: 20” and wider, 12”-18” deep - We suggest a much larger pot or plastic pool for Hubei #3!
