Chufa (Ground Almond, Tiger Nut) MISCTU013
Cyperus esculentus
Widely grown in the Mediterranean for its edible tubers (raw, roasted, baked), chufa was used in the Middle Ages to make faux almond milk. A beverage called horchata is still prepared from chufa in Spain. The tubers prefer moist, sandy soil and 90 to 100 days growing season. One tuber will produce a plant yielding several hundred tubers in the fall. Chufa is dug and stored in a dry place. It is soaked overnight for culinary purposes as well as preparing it in the spring for planting. Can also be grown in tubs. 25 tubers.
