Mashua like manure!

We'd half forgotten we'd planted a (single) mashua till we spotted a heap poking out of the ground today. It seems to have appreciated the manure.

...now to try to remember where the parsnips are...

    Crikey, they look the devil's own to clean. I hope they're worth it StephenSouthwest

    Oddly they're surprisingly easy to clean ..
  • I planted 3 small mashua tubers last year in unenriched soil and they went bonkers sending their tendrils over an area 2x3m or so. They had really nice tropical looking flowers as well. I think my yield was slightly more than yours but that was with 3 tubers and no aftercare whatsoever. They seem a really good crop to grow.
