Where do the bamboo shoots that are edible come from on the plant?

    The most popular way of harvesting edible bamboo is to cut away what’s called the “culm” (the hollow stem of a grass or other plant) when it is very young. It can be harvested once the bamboo shoot has broken through the soil’s surface, but is best before it has seen the light of day – i.e., to harvest it, one must dig beneath the soil for new shoots. When the young shoots are harvested, the culm is split in half and the outer leaf layers are removed. Both the leaves and the core are edible. See link below for more information.
