Cassava Plant: Versatile Staple

Culinary Purposes:

The Cassava Plant (Manihot esculenta) is a versatile staple in many cuisines around the world. Its starchy tuberous roots are used in a variety of dishes, from traditional South American cassava bread to African stews and Asian desserts. Cassava can be boiled, fried, mashed, or ground into flour, offering a gluten-free alternative for baking. It is a valuable source of carbohydrates and can be incorporated into both savory and sweet recipes.

What to Know About the Plant

The Cassava Plant is a fast-growing perennial shrub with large, palmate leaves that are typically green in color. The plant can reach heights of 6 to 15 feet, creating a lush and tropical appearance in the garden. Cassava plants do not have a distinct fragrance, but their vibrant green foliage adds a pop of color to any landscape. The roots of the plant are the main edible part, while the leaves can also be consumed in some cuisines after proper preparation.

Enhancing Your Fruitscape™

Integrating the Cassava Plant into your fruitscape design can add a unique touch of tropical flair. This plant pairs well with other exotic fruit trees like mango, banana, and pineapple, creating a lush and vibrant landscape reminiscent of a tropical paradise. Herbs such as lemongrass, ginger, and turmeric can complement the flavors of cassava in culinary creations, enhancing the overall sensory experience. Consider mixing cassava with colorful ornamental plants like hibiscus or bougainvillea to create a visually stunning and fruitful garden space that will delight both your eyes and taste buds.

Planting & Care
Fruitscaping with Herbs & Veggies

Every good kitchen garden needs to have an herb section. A walk through a garden planted with herbs is truly a sensual experience. Their beautifully textured leaves invite you to stop and touch them, and then reward you with a delightful array of heavenly scents. Herbs can serve many functions in the edible landscape, creepers like oregano, mints and thyme make great ground cover. Low growers like sage, chives and perennial onions are good for edging flower beds and will help in insect control. Taller evergreens like rosemary are wonderful used as low hedges or for planting around the foundation of houses. Herbs also lend themselves well to being grown in containers. Tuck a few pots close to the kitchen so they’ll be handy when you need them.

Growing your own herbs is well worth the effort. The quality and flavor of fresh picked herbs is so much better than the dried products you find in the grocery store. Our climate makes it possible to grow a very wide range of herbs. The hot humid summer are perfect for herbs like basil, Thai ginger and tea camellias. Try the more Mediterranean herbs like lavender,  sage and Thyme in the winter time, they love the cool and are less apt to succumb to fungus.

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
