Mashua* (Tropaeolum tuberosum), 3 potted plants, organic

Mashua (Tropaeolum tuberosum)
Family:  Nasturtium (Tropaeolaceae)
Vining perennial wirth flattish, palmate leaves and large, multicolored, spurred flowers.  Highly desired garden flower.  The thin-skinned, tuberous roots are harvested very late in the season, and are used in soups, being kint to the liver and kidney, also purportedly an antiaphrodisiac that gets served up when the lady of the house is feeling exhausted.  When fresh, they are as peppery as a Nasturtium bud, but when cooked they are mild and yummy in taste.  Plant like a potato.  Trellis.  Benefits from growing in soils of relatively low fertility but good structure.  Hill up.  Give plenty of water late in the growing season to encourage formation of tubers.  Potted plant or pot containing the large, dormant tuber. 
3 Potted Plants, Certified organically grown
