(Cyperus esculentus) This plant is also called Ground Almond or Earth Chestnut. The nutty, sweet tasting, small tubers are quite delicious and produced underground on perennial, grass-like plants. An important food crop in Asia Minor and Egypt since ancient times. This delicacy has been grown for thousands of years; only now is it starting to get popular in America.

Review:

Sweet, nutty taste. Great snack. Very prolific. Each tuber will multiply itself by 100. Easy to grow and requires no attention (I planted in spring and forgot about them until fall.) Difficult to harvest. No matter how hard you sift through the dirt you always leave dozens behind. They can be grown in pots. I would recommend cleaning the tubers in a bucket of water with small gravel, stirring, rinsing, repeat, similar to cleaning walnuts. Chufa can be invasive but will be killed by northern temperatures. Often planted as a food crop for deer and turkey.

Review:

Chufa, or nut grass, can be invasive and will wreak havoc on your lawn once it gets out. They do taste good, and I love the smell of the fresh roots, but if they're in your lawn, kiss a well groomed lawn goodbye.
