Above edible shoots are mostly found in seasons. Some of them are green whereas some give solid yellowish, white colour ,some are found in high altitude & some are in medium & low altitude. But they are mostly found in organic form which matches with our endeavour to serve organic eatables in our Roots & Shoots restaurant.
Thus the name ROOTS & SHOOTS.
