In Response To: Groundnut, anyone? (heidi)

HI heidi!1

Fernald, Kinsey & Rollins, Edible Wild Plants of Eastern North America (1958, Harper & Row) gives Apios americana as the current botanical name, with Apios tuberosa or Glycine Apios as alternates. (Sorry my webware doesn't do italics etc.)

Range is from New Brunswick to Western Ontario, south to the Gulf of Mexico. The tubers are subsitutes for potatoes all right, but the seeds can also be used for beans.

Attempts to introduce the plant in Europe failed because it takes two to three years to get to edible size and its habit of sending out sub-surface strings of 'nuts' makes cultivation impossible.

If you have any growing in your backyard, I can forward some recipes via individual e-mail.
