Andean Tubers

The mountains of South America, long known as the birthplace of potatoes, have many other tasty and nutritious tubers that can be grown and enjoyed all over the US. Usually benefiting from moderate temperatures and regular moisture, they can be grown as row crops in a standard vegetable garden, or planted at the base of other productive trees and shrubs in a more wild, "food forest" style. However you plant, don't forget to add these fascinating and yummy foods to your collection!
