Meet My New Veg

Kathryn Quinn

He's not exactly green-fingered, but this bizarre plant from southern China seems to be more than a handful for any gardener.

The root - from the He Shou Wu plant - is used in traditional medicine to rejuvenate virility and strength and is even said to turn grey hair back to black.

Farmer Lu Chen, 47 - from Nanning - has been offered up to 100 GBP for the plant but refused to sell.

"I think it is a sign that my farm will have new fertility and that I'm going to have a bumper crop this year," he explained.
