Waitrose Launches Goku

The UK supermarket chain has started selling the native Japanese giant spring onion in over 150 of its stores, Talking Retail reported on 10 October.

Grown in Norfolk, goku is almost the size of a leek and can be used in soups and stews, or eaten raw.

Waitrose, always on the lookout for interesting ingredients, believes the vegetable is perfect for lovers of Asian cuisine.
