Yacon


SMALLANTHUS ‘SONCHIFOLIUS PURPLE’

Zone 7 – 11

Sizes Offered

SOLD OUT

Purple Yacon is one of the most extraordinary plants of the Andes. This spectacular plant is related to the sunflower & grows very similar. It is also called “Pear of the Earth” because it’s tubers have a delicious flavour that resembles a blend of watermelon, apple, & pear. It is very juicy and crisp and can be eaten raw or cooked. Highly recommended, fun to grow for a fall harvest.
