Hopniss compliments of community omtimes

Hopniss (5)

Very nutritious but takes 2-3 years for tubers to get to eating size. The tubers grow in 'strings' on the roots. The plants die down in winter which is when they are harvested. Plant them in three spots and dig each spot in turn each year for eating, this allows the tubers time to mature. The tubers are peeled then boiled well before eating. They are delicious and nutty. Only eat well cooked. This is a non-vigorous climber but does spread to some extent by the root. Pull up any shoots that appear in the spring where they are not wanted. They sometimes flower but do not set pods as this on
