nestled in between the ollala and german butterball potatoes, the mashua seems to be doing well...a member of the nasturtium family domesticated by the incas ( they grew the flower we know as nasturtiums as a food crop as well ) and grown for the tubers it produces...i an told they have rather a peppery taste when raw that mellows when they are cooked and that the incas would freeze cooked ones with molasses as a treat...unsure of how they will react to the long photo period of a northwest indiana summer i am not pinning all my hopes on tuber production...but it would be neat.
