Yacon information and growing instructions

A Peruvian variety.  Tan tubers streaked with red/purple, becoming much redder after exposure. The tubers are some of the largest that we see and they are fairly sweet even at harvest.  In my opinion, this is the most attractive of any of the heirloom yacons and a good choice for an edible ornamental.  It has only a medium height, but very large leaves.  The foliage fills out more than the other varieties.

This variety goes by a number of different names, including Cusco and OE.

Medium height, huge leaves, mottled red/tan tuber, green stem, long dormancy.  Late to flower (about 200 days).
