Cassava

There are pink, white and yellow flesh. The yellow flesh is by far the best one. I wonder if I can grow this in Adelaide, even if I plant it in a pot. I miss eating cassava, regardless of the variety.

I come from a country of South America and I grew up eating lots of cassava. It can be cut into 10 cms pieces and fried they are vey nice. You can make soup with it too. Boil it and make it into a paste and grate lots of cheese and bake it.

Cassava

I have mine in loose fertile soil - plenty of manure; n get kilograms of large tubers from each plant. Water well; full sun. We and neighbours experiment on how to prepare / cook / serve the cassava in place of potatoes.

I have one plant, still in a pot, but am a bit cautious about whether it is an edible-leaf or an edible-tuber variety, as I am sure it is either/or, and then it is unsafe to eat the other part.
