Mashua information and growing instructions

mashua-Orange-tuber-exteriorReportedly an Ecuadorian variety, although we don’t have first-hand knowledge of this.  Other sources claim that it is a Chilean variety, which would actually be more interesting, since northern Chile is the southern extent of mashua’s range.  Large tubers, mostly yellow with orange blushing when first harvested, becoming darker orange after exposure to light.  Large, vigorous plants and high yielding.  Fairly mild flavor for mashua – probably a bit spicier than Blanca, but much milder than Ken Aslet.  Doesn’t appear to be susceptible to staining or cracking in wet conditions as some varieties are.

Packet details:

Contains enough material to grow at least two plants.  There may be two tubers, two pieces, or a large tuber that can be cut in two.
