Geographical distribution

The Yacon is a member of the sunflower family and while it grows in the warm, temperate valleys of the Andes, it can be found at altitudes of up to 3200 meters. It is native to the low regions of the Andes and the cloud forests of South America and can be found in Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, and Colombia. These plants produce two types of roots: those of propagation and those of reserve or storage. The roots of propagation grow under the surface of the soil and produce new buds that will become the aerial parts of a new plant. These roots resemble topinanbur. The storage roots are large and edible with tubers that can weigh up to 1 kg.
