It is a drought-tolerant crop that requires minimal care, making it an ideal choice for those who are looking for a reliable source of food.
Cassava is an incredibly versatile crop. It can be eaten raw or cooked, and its leaves can be used as a nutritious green vegetable. It can also be processed into flour, which can be used to make breads, cakes, and other baked goods. The roots can also be used to make tapioca and other starches.
We’ve found that cassava is surprisingly easy to grow in our zone 8 climate. We started by planting several varieties of cassava in our garden and were pleasantly surprised when they grew and flourished! We’ve since expanded our planting area and have been able to harvest a good amount of cassava each year.
If you live in a warmer climate, growing cassava is a great way to ensure you have a reliable source of food. It’s easy to grow, requires minimal care, and is incredibly versatile. Give it a try in your garden this year!
