Family:  Aster (Asteraceae)

Zones 7 to 12.  May be grown in cooler zones as a summer annual–dig tubers after first frost.

Tuberous perennial native to S. America. Rich in fructose and inulin, crisp and delectable, the enlarged storage tubers are a traditional Andean food.  After digging the roots, age them in a cool, dark place for a week or two before eating–they develop their sugars during this resting period, becoming internally almost crystalline.  Don’t be put off by wrinkly skin–they are delicious!  Aerial parts contain 17% protein, making them an excellent feed for livestock. The plants are bold and tough, with decorative, winged leaves, preferring full sun and regular garden soil. Plants reach maturity in 6 to 7 months, flowering bright orange.  Morado is a choice cultivar, purple and sweet.

Potted plant, Certified Organically Grown
