Yacon (2 Plants) March-May. Ships prompt weekly as available.
(Smallanthus sonchifolius) Here’s a delicious and unusual South American relative of Dahlia and Jerusalem Artichoke. Sweet potato-like tubers weigh up to 3 lbs and are produced in 3-5 months from planting. Yacon plants reach 4-5 feet in height and occasionally bloom, bearing small yellow daisies. Two types of tubers are produced: propagation tubers, at the center of the root mass, which can be divided and replanted in the spring, and the edible tubers, which grow outside the central ones. The flavor is like a crisp apple combined with Asian pear. The roots contain inulin (may be useful to diabetics), and possess anti-oxidant and pro-biotic qualities. Please consider these terms before ordering live plants: Most plants will be 3”-7” in height. All plants will ship weekly as available from the first of March to the end of May. Please make sure you are ready for your order in your zone as these young, tender plants generally have no resistance to cold. For any issues with your order please call our customer service, and we will do our best to help you in a timely manner. No orders shipped outside of the USA.
