Elephant Foot Yam (Amorphophallus paeonifolius) by Val Wilson
Elephant Foot Yam is a tropical tuber crop that prefers to grow in semi-shade. Val purchased one from Green Harvest a couple of years ago. She recently harvested a number of kilograms of the tuber. It seems to LOVE our climate.
Do you have an Elephant Foot Yam growing in your garden? Did you know how to harvest, divide up the tubers, replant and process it? In line with Dee choosing demonstrations each month that reveal the edible wonders of plants that are found in our local gardens, this week at our August Club Night, Val has kindly offered to talk us through the process from growing a small plant to harvesting and making Elephant Foot Yam chips.
Come along to enjoy this informative session, highlighting yet another plant that grows easily in our backyards.
Afterwards, Wayne (our hard working, volunteering audio and website expert) will put the information onto our PN website in a youtube capacity, along with all the other demonstrations, so that you can revisit them for years to come.
We look forward to you joining us at PN Club Night this Thursday.
