Apios americana (Rosary Potato) (Apios americana)
10.00 $ 10.00 $ 10.0 CAD
** CANNOT BE SHIPPED OUTSIDE OF CANADA **

KEEP REFRIGERATED FROM RECEIVING TO PLANTING!
Perennial climbing plant native to Quebec. It belongs to the legume family. It is suitable for banks and shores, but also for cultivated gardens. With its very fragrant flowers, it is reminiscent of wisteria. It is also called tuberous glycine. Its other name, wild bean, refers to the edible bean produced (in a favorable climate) by its flowers. Its tubers, also edible, are connected to each other by a vine root, hence its name of potato in a string. It was widely consumed by First Nations. Nowadays, it is not uncommon to see it growing on the site of former Native American villages. Very nutritious (it contains up to 18% protein, three times more than potatoes), it can be eaten boiled or fried. On the other hand, the peel contains latex, so it must be peeled.

*Note Rare people may be indisposed by consumption
Package 8 tubers of small size.
Germination rate 100%

For spring orders, plant in pots until you have access to the ground and can transplant them outside. Each tuber can germinate and give a plant. Cut the rosary into as many parts as it contains tubers. Place each tuber in a flat position, about 5-6 cm deep, much like you would a potato. (However, the Apios does not cut into several pieces like the latter).
You can mulch lightly, the stem will pass through a mulch. Stake.

After two weeks, a frail stem will emerge from the ground. It will roll up like a bean.
Harvest in the fall. When the leaves are dry, dig up the tubers with a pitchfork. A single tuber will give two to three “chains”.
You will have to dig a little further than where you planted. Put a single tuber back in the same place in anticipation of next year's harvest. Mulch. Apios americana is very resistant to Quebec winters.

Taste the rest. Be sure to peel and boil or fry well before eating, as the peel contains latex, which can cause stomach bloating.
Yellow nutsedge (Cyperus esculentus)
3.78 $ 3.78 $ 3.7800000000000002 CAD
Tigernut, or ground almond, is a grass that produces small, almond- and coconut-flavoured tubers at the roots.;;;Tigernut is used to prepare a refreshing sweet drink, known in Spain as the name of horchata de chufa (sedge milk or, more precisely, tiger nut orgeat). In Africa, it is generally eaten fresh or dried as a delicacy, like peanuts or coconut. A delicious juice is extracted from it. It also makes excellent oil and even flour, and is often found on market stalls. This tuber is one of the oldest cultivated plants in ancient Egypt. Tigernut was undoubtedly an important element in the diet of ancient Egypt. In dynastic times, for example, it was made into cakes. The yellow nutsedge is annual, non-invasive in our climates, because the cold of our winters prevents it from reproducing.

MAINTENANCE AND OTHER CONSIDERATIONS
Soak the tubers in water at room temperature for 24 hours before planting them. Germinates best in heat.;Tubers don't tend to germinate all at once, it can take up to three weeks from the first to the last germination.Tip After soaking your tigernuts, you can leave them in a sprouter (or a bag with a damp paper towel).

From the dandelion family, it has an edible root with a slight nutty taste. The roots are tender and devoid of bitterness, provided they are picked before the flower stalk develops. The leaves are also edible. When the flowers appear, in the second year, it is possible to eat the flower buds like those of scorzonera.
