Have you ever tried Yacon (ground apple)?

We’ve been growing #Yacon at our Knowledge #Park in #Godavari since 2010 and promote it to our visitors by providing information and seeds as well! Yacon is traditionally grown in the northern and central Andes in #Peru and #Columbia for its crisp, sweet tasting and tuberous roots. It is suitable to cultivate at an altitude of above 1,500 meters from the sea level.

Yacon has many health benefits such as aiding digestion, preventing digestive issues, reducing #cholesterol and maintaining #healthy weight.
