5 Mashua Tubers, Tropaeolum Tuberosum, grown with love at The Husbandry School.
Mashua is a root tuber that has been grown in the Andean Mountains for centuries and contains more vitamin C than an orange.
Similar to a potato, this versatile tuber can be boiled mashed or roasted for a delicious lemony flavour, or sliced raw into salads for a fresh radish-like taste!
The leaves are also edible and make excellent and interesting additions to salads, and dressings and garnish.
These fantastic plants and not only delicious but beautiful, similar to a nasturtium in flower and leaf, Mashua add a wonderful point of interest even in small gardens.
