Apios americana (rosary potato) – Organic

american celery

14.00$

In Quebec, tuberous wisteria grows naturally along the clay shores of the St. Lawrence River to the limit of salt water, but adapts to garden cultivation. Its names are multiple: American apios, pénacs, rosary potatoes, potato bean.

Well known to Native American peoples, this pretty climbing plant was quickly adopted by European settlers who ate its sweet-tasting, protein-rich tubers during famines.

The tubers grow in strings on the surface of the soil for easy harvesting. Because their peel contains latex, it is removed before cooking in water or frying, like potatoes.

It produces edible beans, but they require a fair amount of heat to reach maturity. Harvests are therefore meager or non-existent in the more northern regions.

It is simply grown in cool, moist and sandy soil, in sun or partial shade. By giving it a support to climb on, you will be able to better admire its fragrant, purple summer flowers.

* presale From December 2024. Expedition tubers is carried out from April 10, 2025 so that you can put them in the ground in May 2025. Shipping costs are to be expected for this product.
