Origin

The shoots of this plant are very popular in Southeast Asia. Chinese people call it ´HE LAN DO´ (pronounced: che-lando), which means ´HOLLANDS´! This name refers to the Dutch traders from the VOC (United East Indies Company) who, in the 17th century (the Dutch Golden Century) brought ideas to growers in the region.
