Arracacha

I’m getting better at growing arracacha. We’ve gotten plants up to good size to provide a few meals this year. This is another plant that is difficult to get seed from, but I need seed in order to try for some varieties that grow better in our cool climate. Any experienced arracacha farmer would be embarrassed by the paltry roots on this plant, but it was enough for dinner for two and it was delicious!

Hope you had something else on the menu…

No kidding. A couple of those roots are the size of medium carrots, but not an impressive showing overall. I have done quite a bit better since then, but it takes 14 months.
