Tasmanian Wasabi

wasabi stemsWasabi (Wasabia japonica Matsumara) is a perennial herb, native to Japan, and belongs to the same plant family as broccoli, cabbage and mustards. In Japan, wasabi is cultivated in fields and mountain streams and the fresh product is prepared by grating the stem of the plant to form a hot, spicy paste that is served with traditional dishes such as sushi, sashimi and soba noodles. Japan produces about 5,000 tonnes of wasabi per annum, in Tokyo’s fresh vegetable market it is referred to as ‘green gold’. 

Commonly referred to as the ‘root’ of wasabi,  fresh wasabi stems provide an outstanding hot, sweet flavour when freshly grated. This is real wasabi at its best!

Tasmania started growing wasabi in 1994, so as to expand their range of high value products that grow in Tasmania’s pristine environment. Now in 2008 they have perfected their wasabi industry and are supplying superior quality hydroponic wasabi all around the world.

Each stem has a typical weight of 80-150g and will provide 10-15 average serves. Min. order 500g.

Australian Organic Garlic

Due to its large cloves, many cooks prefer it, as it’s easier to prepare and has a longer shelf life.

Produced without artificial pesticides or fertilizers, this organic garlic is renowned for its flavourful and nutritious properties.

Australian Yuzu


Yuzu is a citrus fruit originating in East Asia; it is believed to be a hybrid sour mandarin and Ichang papeda. The fruit looks similar to a very small grapefruit with an uneven skin; it ranges in colour from green to yellow depending on the degree of ripeness. It has a tart flavour with a hint of mandarin, again resembling that of a grapefruit. Yuzu is rarely eaten as a fruit, though in the Japanese cuisine its aromatic zest is used to garnish dishes, and its juice is used as a seasoning, a bit like that way a lemon is used. Yuzu is restricted from being imported into Australia, however, Waimea Trading has an established relationship with a renowned Yuzu grower within Australia.

Availability and price of Yuzu is subject to its seasonality, please contact Waimea Trading for more information.

Minimum order is 1kg
