Smallanthus sonchifolius, Peruvian Ground Apple, Bolivian Sunroot
An unusual and delicious tuber, widely grown in South America for its crunchy texture and sweet pear-like flavour. Similar in appearance to a sweet potato but with the texture of water chestnuts, yacon makes a fabulous addition to stir fries and salads, or try tossing it in olive oil and roasting with other root vegetables. The juice from yacon tubers can also be simmered to make a sweet syrup similar to honey or maple syrup. Containing an indigestible sugar called Inulin, both the tubers and syrup are suitable for diabetics and yacon syrup is virtually calorie-free! Yacon makes a particularly attractive crop in the garden with bushy growth and large lush leaves which lend an exotic feel to borders or the vegetable plot. Height: 1.8m (6'). Spread: 100cm (39").
