Planting tips: Simply dig a small trench, about 10cm deep, and the length of the cutting. Lay the cutting horizontally into the trench, cover it with soil, and give it some water. Remember: the better the soil, the quicker and better your plants will grow. All our edibles grow happily and quickly in raised garden beds.

Eating tips: This vegetable has to be cooked/boiled before eating. The thick skin needs to be peeled and discarded before cooking. Perfect potatoe substitute. Great for chips and to make flour and starch. The leaves are edible when boiled for at least 15 minutes. Great for soups and curry dishes.

IMPORTANT: Never eat Cassava raw. The root must be peeled (the think skin off) and cooked as the peel contains cyanide.

The price is for two cuttings, naturally grown in my permaculture food forest. If you buy two lots, you get four cuttings. We have Cassava plants available in our shop, too. The cuttings length is about 20cm. Sending within Australia only. Not to WA, Norfolk Island, NT, SA
