Description

New Zealand yam

A tender herbaceous perennial, sometimes also known as Peruvian Wood Sorrel due to it originating from the Andes mountain range. It produces characteristic dainty oxalis-shaped leaves with a lemon-like flavour, and better still, bright red and yellow tubers that can be used raw in salads, or steamed, cooked or fried, used in a similar way to sweet potatoes but with a more tangy, nutty flavour and smaller tubers.

Supplied as a well-established plug plant, pot up immediately on arrival and grow on in a warm and bright place indoors, such as a sunny south-facing windowsill.

 

Delivery Details

Pot up immediately on arrival and grow on in a warm and bright place indoors, such as a sunny south-facing windowsill.

Gradually reduce watering and allow the tops to die back in midwinter, placing the dormant plant in a cooler position. In early spring, bring back into growth by re-introducing warmth and water. May need potting up into a large decorative container in late spring, and can be placed outdoors in a sheltered but sunny position in mid-summer. Tubers will be ready to harvest mid-autumn, and some can be saved for spring planting to repeat the process each year.

Final height and spread: 40x30cm
