"They produce barq, kushayan, and fifty percent of the luxury foodstuffs and beverages in the galaxy."
Jedi Master Arligan Zey speaks about Qiilura[src]

Kushayan was a non-sentient species of luxury crop plant grown on the planet Qiilura at the start of the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems. In 22 BBY, the Neimoidian Separatist Lik Ankkit owned a villa built in Qiilura's capital city of Imbraani which overlooked a Kushayan plantation. During a Republic mission on Qiilura Jedi Padawan Etain Tur-Mukan and clone commando Darman used strips of dried Kushayan, along with other crops, to hide the clones gear while they transported it on a cart to a safe house.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Kushayan first appeared in Republic Commando: Hard Contact a novel written by Karen Traviss and released in 2004.
