Cassava
Cassava

  • Price: $15.00

A large, 3-4 m high, tropical woody shrub with enlarged tuberous roots. It tends to branch irregularly and bears its large (20 cm long) lobed leaves near the tips of long branches. The leaves are short-lived (1-3 months) and are readily lost during drought or after insect attack. Cassava is very hardy and tolerant of a wide range of soils. Woody cuttings are planted upright in the soil with the sloping end up. Cutting the tops of the cuttings at an angle stops water sitting there and reduces problems with rot. (Ref: Wikipedia - see link).

Comments Warnings : Cassava must be cooked properly to detoxify it before it is eaten and the water discarded. There are specific ways to prepare it. See link for details.
