Description

Yacon ‘Inca Red’ is an unusual and delicious tuberous vegetable, 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").

How to Grow

Grow plugs on in cool but frost-free conditions and plant out when all danger of frost has passed.

Plant outside in late May allowing 90cm (36”) between each plant. Cut the leaves back to about 4 inches above the crowns and lift whole plant with a fork. Separate the crowns from the tubers. The crowns are frost tender – pot up and grow on in a frost-free place to plant early next year. Brush the soil off tubers and leave in sun to dry for up to two weeks.

Thompson & Morgan strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3
