CASSAVA - VARIEGATED
Colourful cassava that boasts bright green and creamy white to bright, sunny yellow leaves highlighted with red petioles. Its palmate leaves add both colour and a tropical feel to the garden. It can be grown year round in the tropics and subtropics and as an annual in cooler regions as the roots will send up shoots in the spring. Both the leaves and roots are edible but are also poisonous so must be cooked correctly.
Toxicity warning - Cassava must be prepared before it is eaten as it contains cyanide. Boil leaves for 10 minutes and roots for 20 minutes. Discard the water.
