Polymnia Sonchifolia

Yacon is a tuber similar to the potato or jicama that is native to the Andean region of South America. Yacon is gaining attention around the world for its numerous health benefits, but it has long been consumed by the indigenous people of South America.

Yacon, Polymnia sonchifolia, also known as Peruvian ground apple is a relative of the sunflower. It produces juicy, edible tubers, from which its name, translated as “watery root,” is derived.
