Notes

Root - raw or cooked[1]. The raw root tastes like potatoes[1]. A pleasant crisp taste, though the outer skin has a slightly bitter taste[2]. The root is available at almost any time of the year, its only drawback is that it is a bit small and fiddly to harvest in quantity[2]. It may respond to cultivation.

Propagation

Seed - no information has been found. It is probably best to sow the seed as soon as it is ripe in late spring or early summer. Sow in pots in a cold frame and when they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots. Grow them on in the greenhouse for at least their first winter and plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts. Division should be possible at any time the plant is dormant, probably from mid summer to late winter.

Cultivation

We have very little information on this species and do not know if it will be hardy in Britain, though judging by its native range it should succeed outdoors in most parts of the country. From its native habitat it can be assumed that the plant requires a sunny position in a moist but well drained light to medium soil[K].
