仙草

仙草為唇形科草本植物,屬低耗水抗旱作物。傳統仙草於每年10月開花前採收,一年採收一次,連根拔起,經日光曝曬後堆疊保存。楊梅仙草則採用行政院農委會桃園農改場研發、楊梅區農會輔導栽種之新品種仙草【桃園二號-香華】,香華自種植至採收過程,完全不使用農藥,以友善耕種、機械採收、只取嫩莖葉,一年可採收五至六次。

楊梅農會產銷班

【桃園二號-香華】是由楊梅區農會輔導之仙草產銷班梁華君、周宗錦、林應樹、許水嚴、李子千等15位班員於各自的農田裡栽種,採無毒、無農藥、友善耕種方式種植。

Chinese Mesona
Platostoma palustre, commonly known as Chinese Mesona, has low water
consumption and it is drought tolerant. Traditionally Chinese mesona is
harvested once a year in October before it flowers. After pulling up by its
roots, it is then dried under the sun and piled up to store.
Yangmei Agriculture Production and Marketing Group
With help from the Taoyuan District Agricultural Research and Extension
Station and the Yangmei Farmers' Association, 15 farmers in this group grow
a new variety of Chinese mesona ‘Taoyuan No. 2 Xiang Hua’ in their own
farms. They adopt eco-friendly and non-toxic farming methods and do not use
any pesticides. They only harvest young stems and leaves and Xiang Hua
can be harvested five to six times a year.
