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.htm

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".

Thanks, good to know. Now I know better than to try growing one.
