Tubers: 1/4 lb: $6.00, lb: $12.00
'CHUFA', 'EARTH ALMOND', 'TIGER-NUTS'. Ornamental perennial to 8" - 3 feet
Now you have me wondering. I checked the latin name and it states:
(Cyperus esculentus) This plant is also called Ground Almond or Earth Chestnut. The nutty, sweet tasting, small tubers are quite delicious and produced underground on perennial, grass-like plants. An important food crop in Asia Minor and Egypt since ancient times. This delicacy has been grown for thousands of years; only now is it starting to get popular in America.
So, would the opinion be this is different from Nut Sedge, and not invasive??
