Mauka, Mirabilis Expansa

Sorry, I can’t send to WA, TAS or NT! 

Rare Andean perennial root vegetable which is easy to grow.

$9.95

Out of stock

Very rare Andean root vegetable grows quickly to a mess of expanding stems.

Mauka can adapt to a wide range of growing conditions and soils. It is probably hardy in all parts of Australia. While the top dies back in frost, the caudex survives freezing temperatures.

While the root is the main part to be harvested, the leaves are also edible.
