|I have ordered from Fedco and I trust them, but as Bob said, the probblem is int'l shipping.|
springcolor, thanks for that info. I haven't heard of these before. I did some googling and found information on a slightly more reliable source: http://www.rain-tree.com/yacon...
We also have an empty entry in our database: Yacon (Smallanthus sonchifolius)
I'm going to research this plant further.

|Hmmm, one of those links listed it as jicama, something sold in our local grocery stores. Wonder if I should pick one up and plant it; looks like I still have time (7 to 9 months).|
unamaynot, maybe check your grocery store also. And yes, I've had things confiscated at Australian customs before, they're very restrictive about what comes in.

|The Yacon is called Jicama in some areas, but the jicama in our grocery stores is a tropical vine and a very different plant than this "Yacon".|
