Hi there. I will be harvesting my yacon in the next month or two and can send you some then for you to plant in spring...paying it forward as I was given 3 two seasons ago, planted 12 and gave away 16 last season, so I expect to have wayyyyy too much this harvest!!!

Hello Dawn. I am in Tauranga, was given a Yacon plant last spring. It is beginning to die down. can you give me any advice as to what I do with it now. Do I dig the whole plant up? how do I start another plant for the coming spring? Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated. Regards Carol

Dig the whole plant up. Eat the large light brown tubers (look like dahlia tubers) . Where the stem meets the ground should be a different thickened part more reddish keep this it will get shoots in spring and is the bit to plant when danger of frosts is past.
