Hi everyone, I am developing my small farm along the coast of Murcia in southern Spain into a food forest. One of the more exotic species  I still have on my list to try is Casava. Anybody here in Spain that has Casava and could make some cuttings available (since you cannot grow Casava from seed)?

Best regards, Jones

I'm in Mexico so I'm not much help, except to mention that I'm in a group on Discord, that does have a lot of members in Spain.  https://discord.com/channels/788055845547409420/788055845547409423  I'm not sure if that link will work--I haven't really managed to get a handle on how discord works.  But you start at the webpage https://regenerativeskills.com/about/

You might try asking african immigrant communities in Spain.  There are a lot of West Africans who might have brought cassava to grow, if it will grow in Spain.

Thank you both for the useful feedback. I am not familiar with Discord but will have a look. Visited a number of African and South American shops (which are a great source for exotic planting material) but no luck yet with Casava.

Hi ,

I lived in Africa for most of my life, why do you want to grow Casava, it does not have half the goodness and nutrients etc of Maize meal / corn on the cob ?

I am looking for some land in Spain to cultivate if you know of any in your area

Cheers  Alan
