Have not grown it Mary[Ann, but tasted the fruit and it was yummy. When we went to Daley's visit, they had a large one growing near a rear shed and let us taste the fruit. The plant was huge, and don't know how long to wait for fruiting time. I suppose you would just treat it like a cactus plant.
when w lived in Tucson AZ we had cactus plants and some locals mad us cactus jam - was really tasty !
Prickly Pear jam is really quite something. So much pectin, it just about rolls up after the knife when spreading it. Preparing the fruits is, so I'm told, a bit hazardous.
Well this proved to interesting. I assumed you meant Yacon (Peruvian ground apple) but not at all. Reminds me of a dragon fruit in many ways.
tastes very like a crisp dragon fruit ! they are really yummy and apparently easy to grow ! hope these ones grow like the dragon fruit cause then we can share lots of pieces soon !
and that Mary-Ann is what I love about this site!
Never heard of this one before.
