Has any one grown these plants, I have two in and they have just started flowering.
When is the correct time for harvest?
Any help appreciated thanks.
The tops should die down a bit after flowering and thats the time to check for the tubers………….have a bandicoot around like you would for potatoes.
Wish i had the chance to do that this winter, mine were looking lush and healthy………..just before they drowned:confused:
Thanks RTB, one of mine was a bit stinted but with the rain over the last month has shot ahead. If you need some bulbs to plant let me know and I will see what is there at harvest.
Here a pic of one…
Thanks ccBear, will see if the northerners have any to spare this year first as they are heavy to post:tup:
Is this like a sweet potato? where can I can plants/bulbs/seeds from?
Oops, should read where can I get them from.
Mine from Bella dieded 🙁
ccbear, where’s you bin, haven’t seen you around in ages :wave:
Marz I think they have them at green harvest
Hi Tully have been sorting out a few problems, we were not sure if we were staying here or moving plus still trying to find a bit of work.
Look’s like we are staying so things are easing back a bit and I can get back to the garden. Have not done much this year.
Once I harvest I should have a few tubers to spare.
I think I left them in the ground to long. So those who have planted and harvested, how do you keep them or preserve them.
There have been several threads already talking about Yacon, including this one:
we leave ours in the ground an dig them up as we need them 😀
