Toothache Plant, Paracress, Botox Plant, Jambu
Origin: Brazil

Plants marked as ethnomedical and/or described as medicinal, are not offered as medicine but rather as ornamentals or plant collectibles.

Toothache Plant is a medicinal herb that has been used for generations to manage the pain of toothaches. Both the leaves and the attractive golden flowers can be used as a natural anesthetic. Simply chew the leaves or flowers for a few seconds then you will experience a tingling and numbing sensation in your mouth. An infusion or tincture made from the Toothache Plant is said to promote gum and throat health due to its strong antibacterial properties. For culinary purposes, small amounts of shredded fresh leaves are said to add a unique flavor to salads. Cooked leaves lose their strong flavor and may be used as leafy greens. Both fresh and cooked leaves are used in dishes such as stews in northern Brazil. They are combined with chilis and garlic to add flavor and vitamins to other foods. The use of jambu extract as a food flavor is described as having an odor of citrus, herbal, tropical or musty odor, and its taste can be pungent, cooling, tingling, numbing, or effervescent.

Acmella Oleracea extract is considered a natural alternative to Botox. Applied topically, Acmella Oleracea reportedly reduces muscle tension, reducing facial wrinkles caused by tense or contracted facial muscles. It is considered a natural muscle relaxant and has been traditionally used as an herbal Orajel of sorts, thanks to the presence of analgesic alkylamides called spilanthol. This spilanthol is thought to have the same paralyzing effects on facial muscles as it does on gums, reducing wrinkles by relaxing the skin. Itís seen in topical formulas and can easily penetrate the skin, inhibiting contractions in subcutaneous muscles.

The plant is a small, erect, it grows quickly and bears gold and red inflorescences. It is frost-sensitive but perennial in warmer climates. Can be grown in a container and as a houseplant.

The fast-growing, climbing vine is very hardy, and is capable of surviving slow temperature drops to -34 C (-30 F), although young shoots can be vulnerable to frost in the spring. This vine needs a strong (vines are heavy) support structure on which to grow such as a trellis, arbor, patio overhead, fence or wall.

Actinidia arguta - Hardy Kiwi Chang Bai Giant, Low chill

Click to see full-size image

Vigorous twining vine producing an abundance of small, delicious smooth-skinned fruit. Although, this cultivar can produce abundant crops in the absence of a male pollinator, often in the first year after planting, we recommend other varieties as a pollinator in order to yield more and larger fruit:
Hardy Kiwi Kens Red
Hardy Mini Kiwi Prolific
Native to the mountains and hills of southwestern China, hardy in zones 5-7, these plants have been tested in New Hampshire and New York State where they survived 25 degrees F below zero temperatures! Kiwi plants are attractive growers that require a sunny location, preferably with wind protection. They can be grown in different types of soils; however, the soil must be well drained. The vines take very little maintenance-just pruning and support to hold about 100 lbs. of fruit for a mature plant. The fruit is very high in Vitamin C and its use in recipes is endless. The hardy Kiwis ripen in mid to late September.
RECOMMENDED FERTILIZER:
SUNSHINE C-Cibus - Crop Nutrition Booster
SUNSHINE-Honey - sugar booster

Actinidia arguta - Hardy Kiwi Kens Red, Low chill

Click to see full-size image

Vigorous twining vine producing an abundance of small, delicious smooth-skinned fruit. This climber offers glossy foliage and fragrant white blooms, making it a showy landscape specimen. Attractive on arbor or trellis.
The hardy kiwi vine grows smooth-skinned juicy green fruits up to 11.5 inch across. Unlike the larger 'New Zealand' kiwis, which must be peeled before eating-the skin of the hardy kiwi is as tender and edible as a juicy grape, and the fruits picked fresh off the vine are even sweeter than regular kiwis. Chill Hours 300-400

The vines are easy to grow, are not troubled by insect of disease, flowers in spring, followed by clusters of delicious ripe fruit by the end of summer. Deciduous.
We recommend to plant with other varieties as a pollinator in order to yield more and larger fruit:
Hardy Kiwi Chang Bai Giant
Hardy Mini Kiwi Prolific

Actinidia arguta - Hardy Mini Kiwi Prolific

Click to see full-size image

Prolific Hardy Kiwi is valued for its self fertility. Prolific fruit is dark green all the way through. Hardy Kiwi likes half day to full sun and well-drained soil. The plants need a strong trellis and can spread 10-12 ft when mature. Prolific Kiwi, a self-pollinating variety, is early ripening and produces abundant crops of medium to large, sweet and tasty fruit. The cultivar is sometimes used as a pollinator for other female cultivars. Fruits are flavorful with reddish/violet on the skin and flesh when ripe. Minimum chilling requirements 300 hours. These Kiwi have smooth-skinned fruits so there is no need to peel the skin of the fruits unlike the fuzzy fruit species Actinidia deliciosa. Fruits vary in size and are similar to several varieties of grapes. Plant stems and fruit buds are more cold tolerant than the A. deliciosa species and are mainly grown in colder areas where the cold temperatures can range from 10-18F. Fruit flavors are of course different with every cultivar, similar to all fruits.
The Hardy Mini Kiwi Prolific can bear fruit the first year after planting. It produces smooth-skinned fruit the size of large grapes in late summer to early fall, great for fresh eating, salads, dessert or jelly. Kiwi plants are attractive growers that require a sunny location, preferably with wind protection. They can be grown in different types of soils; however, the soil must be well drained. Kiwi plants are very pretty when used to cover a wall or fence or used in landscape design. Less aggressive than other kiwi varieties, Prolific is easily trained and ideal for trellises or fences.
