Member $9.95
This adaptable widespread plant is widely cultivated as an important staple root vegetable, and was one of the early Incan foods. Known in South America as Achira, this canna forms a tall screen of lush foliage, a seasonal windbreak, topped with attractive orange flowers. When baked, it becomes translucent and sweet. The young protein rich shoots may be eaten as a green vegetable, and as the leaves unfurl they may be used to wrap and display food.
