Quite good for piupiu as it strips well and cleanly although it has rather thin fibre. Dries hard to a pale cream after being boiled for one minute.
A muka variety. Tall, straight, strong, yellow-green blades. Light orange keel and margins. Similar to Tāpoto, but softer and taller. Tall thin kōrari with light seed heads.
|Uses||Quite good for piupiu as it strips well and cleanly although it has rather thin fibre. Dries hard to a pale cream after being boiled for one minute.|
|Piupiu||Strips well, curls well. The fibre is fine and dries to a white colour.|
|Muka extraction||Muka extracts cleanly, para removes well. Small amount of fibre, thinning out towards tip of leaf.|
|Raranga - unboiled||Butt end hard to soften, reflecting fibre content. Tip much softer, lack of fibre. Edges fray slightly. Nice long whenu.|
