De wonderboom is binnen! Samen met de theeplant en fingerlime zat het in een stevige doos. Alles was keurig verpakt. De boom is een lange slungel. De boom verliest zijn blad en moet binnen overwinteren en kwam al vergeeld uit de doos. Daar schrok ik een beetje van, maar navraag bij palma verde leerde me dat dit heel normaal is in oktober.

Er is al geproefd van de boom en de blaadjes zijn lekker mals en appetijtelijk.
