Yacon information and growing instructions

A New Zealand commercial variety.  (This is probably the variety that was originally imported to New Zealand from Ecuador, but we can’t be sure of that.)  High yielding.  White/tan tubers with a lot of purple/red blushing, becoming darker after exposure.  Relatively short plants may perform better in windy environments.  The best seed producer of our heirloom varieties, with almost 3 seeds per flower with hand pollination.  We now have several seedlings out of this variety.

Medium height, mottled red/tan tuber, red stem, long dormancy, intermediate flowering.
