Apios Americana, AKA hopniss or groundnut, has a long history of use in the Eastern Woodlands of North America. It is becoming popular once again for its edible tubers, and its potential as a perennial root vegetable. The seeds and other parts of the plant are also edible.

I have seeds available. They are from a population of diploid (seed-producing) plants in New Jersey, zone 7a (formerly 6b).

10 seeds for $13.
20 seeds for $20.
Free shipping.

PM to order, or with any questions. Thanks kindly.

NOTE: BETWEEN 12/1/2023 and 1/28/2024 I will be away from home, and shipping will be suspended. If you order between Dec 1 and Jan 28, I will confirm the order and it will ship the week of Jan 29.

New better deal, as I still have more seeds than I can plant this spring:

20 seeds for $13
40 seeds for $25

That's cheaper than I'm selling them on ebay :-P
If you want to propose a trade or other deal, I'll hear it.

I ran across this a bit late, but wondering if you find that any of your plants are heavy seed bearers.  I've been hunting down seeds from plants that seem good at doing that in the northeast and therefore can't help but ask

Hi Greg, I appreciate you reaching out.

In my own garden I am selecting heavily for upland tuber production, in addition to seed production. I am still in an early stage of the project, so the best and most productive are the ones I feel inclined to hold onto.

That being said, my hopniss originates from a wild population down the street that is absolutely loaded down with seeds each fall. I can provide you seeds from this prolifically-seeding wild population.

I'd love that!  Do you have some now for sale or should I wait for the fall?

I have some that I harvested in October. If you're interested in those send me a message.
