Our Monkeyhead (Pom Pom Blanc) has a round bulbous shape and is white to creamy white. Its taste is mild and sweet, a little nutty.
Traditional Chinese Medicine prescribe the Pom Pom Blanc for stomach problems.
Modern researchers contribute antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties to it. The most exciting new discovery though, is that it might possibly be able to stimulate and repair nerve cells in the brain.
