Also known as potato bean, hopniss, Indian potato, hodoimo, America-hodoimo, cinnamon vine, American groundnut, or groundnut. Quebec-native climbing plant. It belongs to the legume family Fabaceae. Grows well on river banks and shores, but also in the garden. Its flowers have a strong perfume, reminiscent of glycine. It is sometimes referred to as ‘glycine tubéreuse’ (tuberous glycine). The bean part of some of its common names refers to the edible beans produced from its flowers, when climate allows. Its tubers, also edible, are interconnected by a liana-root giving it a rosary-like appearance. The apios was widely eaten by First Nations. Nowadays, it is still common to see it growing where their settlements once were. Highly nutritional, it contains up to 18% proteins, 3x that of potatoes. It can be eaten boiled or fried. However, make sure to peel it thoroughly as the skin contains latex. Please note, although very rare, that some people might feel unwell from Apios americana consumption.

Each tuber can germinate into an individual plant.
Cut the rosary-like string to separate each tuber.
Lay each tuber down in the soil, about 5 to 6 cm, like you would do with a potato. (However, Apios tubers CANNOT be cut into many pieces like potatoes).
You can mulch lightly, the stem with make its way through. Provide a tutor.
After 2 weeks, a puny stem will emerge. It will climb just like a bean, wrapping itself around the support structures it finds.
In the fall, once the leaves are dry, dig out the tubers with a pitch. Put back a single tuber in the same spot for next year’s harvest. Mulch. Apios americana tolerates quebecois winters very well.
Enjoy the other tubers. Make sure to properly peel off the skin and boil/fry them before consumption, as the skin contains some latex which might cause bloating.

On the outside, with its pale white skin, this ball-shaped radish looks boring. But inside awaits a splash of pink-colored flesh, truly like a watermelon.
Crisp and sweet taste, milder than many radishes. It is better to peel the hard skin. Ideal for carpaccio, can be eaten raw, roasted or stewed. Great if you wish to cause a sensation or want the children to discover radishes !
This Chinese heirloom is of the daikon type.
