Everything Else > Tropical Vegetables and Other Edibles

off topic, any Cyperus esculentus?

(1/3) > >>

Found "tigernut flour" as a paleo/keto food.

This reminds me of another edible grass like tuber - nut sedge,
And these prairie plants sound ideal for our fields.

How are they for nutrient cycling, it seems to need intense cultivation, but if Cyperus esculentus is left alone is it unable to be used as food until cultivated again?

Id like to grow them anyway or any similar plants, so please pm me if you can share.

Thanks friends

be careful of the tropical veg forum if you on a work pc it is like 90% porn links now....
I wont even go on to it anymore :'(

Tigernut is very easy to grow (except needs quite alot of water) and is super tasty I love the "nuts" fresh they are crisp and juicy if you dry for a bit it gets much sweeter. A great snack.

one caveat, they are apparently pretty invasive and spread.

Sounds harmless, edible, super nutritious, invasive... Dreamy...

OK, so who has it alive and well?

Please forgive, the other site is a whole different community. If I were garage saling I would not ask here. But being plant, tropical, and edible - justified my transcendence.

Thanks
