Description

In Paraguay, Uruguay, South Brazil and North Argentine, mate is a national drink. Traditionally the infusion is sipped through a metal straw - the "bombilla"- from a "cuia", (hollowed-out pumpkin). A very refreshing drink which dampens the appetite.
Fresh leaves have a stimulating effect if chewed.
Approx. 10 Ilex paraguariensis seeds

Growing instructions

Mate is an evergreen shrub, native to Brazil. It grows very rapidly in a rich, weel drained soil. The seeds must be stratified (place in layers of moist sand). Sometimes it takes one year before germination starts. Frequently check the stratification boxes too se if germination has begun. Then sow immediately (with the sand) in prepared bed. For making Mate tea: The branch tips bearing young leaves can be cut when young. The leaves should be toasted in an oven until dry.
