Bamboo Shoots Appear refers to the period when bamboo springs up, but since it's late May, this may seem a little late. In fact, the plant we usually refer to as bamboo shoots is in fact made up of several types of bamboo, and each variety has a slightly different harvest period. The most commonly seen bamboo shoot comes from moso bamboo, which begins to appear on the market in March, but Japanese timber bamboo can be harvested until around June.
