Bird’s Nest Fern
Specialty product: Bird’s Nest Fern
Main production area(s): Shihzih Township,Fangshan Township,
The county is one of the most important production regions for Bird’s Nest Fern. Ever since the indigenous community developed it into a type of edible wild herb, the consumers have welcomed its crisp, flavorsome taste. Bird’s Nest Fern prefers to grow in cool, damp environments; thus, it propagates readily in the wild in low elevation forests. The yellow, green tender leaves are the main edible regions. It is crisp, smooth and lush, suitable for stir-frying, boiling, braising or serving as a cold dish. In particular, stir-fried Bird’s Nest Fern with small dried fish is the signature dish of the vegetable.
