This dainty pea family vine is as beautiful as it is delicious!
The starchy tubers range in size from a few grams to as much as 18 ounces, and offer a nutty rich flavor that compliments a wide range of vegetables.
Apios Americana is a native perennial that is easy to grow, and loves to climb. Despite being light and gentle enough to crawl up a sunflower, or corn stalk, it is also extremely vigorous and highly productive. Plant comes as a tuber.
On top of that, this incredible friend can grow in both dry upland habitats, and wet lowlands. They also tolerate a wide range of soil types, from the wet sandy loam of a riverside, to the compacted clay of a suburban lawn, these plants are survivors.
