Native Ginger is often found in rainforest understories of Northern NSW and Southern QLD. Both the spicy root and bright blue fruit may be eaten. To eat the fruit, peel off the outer shell and suck on the inner seeds. You will get a lovely taste of ginger!
Aboriginal people would suck the seeds and spit them out beside their walking tracks which eventually became lined in ginger plants. The ginger’s large leaves were traditionally cut and used for shelters and to wrap food during cooking.
