“Mukago” is a season word for the late fall in Haiku. It is nutritious harvest of Japan.
“Mukago” is a bulbil and there are two types in its derivation.
1. derived from stalks such as Japanese yam
2. derived from leaves such as Lilium lancifolium
Commonly “Mukago” is used the word that means Japanese yam bulbil in a limited sense.
When the bulbil falls to the ground, it grow up in the next spring.
The seed is small and light, so it can be carried far away by the wind. But accumulation nutrients less. It takes time to grow.
“Mukago” can not fly far away, but it contains enough nutrients to grow by itself. So It is possible to grow faster.
