Does anyone know how to get in touch with 'Yacon NZ'.? The website has not been updated since 2004 and a letter I sent to an address I got out of Growing Today has come back labelled Gone, left no address. There was quite a lot of publicity written about Yacon several years ago concerning the feasibilty of growing it as a commercial crop. It is a very delicious vegetable when added to salads, stir fries or eaten peeled as one would an apple. It is sweet but has no sugar so is very suitable for diabetics.

Hello Kristine, if you haven't already found your yacon, please try http://www.gazmik.co.nz/product_info.php?products_id=61 or on trade me, there's an auction of tubers http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/SearchResults.aspx?searchType=all&a....
a question more than a response - are yacon best grown in a confined space eg a large pot. I ask this because my Jerusalem artichokes are rampantly spreading everywhere!!
Yacon does not go mad like J. artichokes, they behave more like dahlias. The tubers respond well to good soil and occasional feeding. I have been pulling my out my surplus artichokes before they get too tall, and putting them in the compost.

Hi Kristine, if you need some yacon plants email back and we can arrange to get you some of mine, K
Thank you for your reply, but I already have a Yacon Plantation. I made my initial query because I am hopeful of being able to contact and then supply a manufacturer of Yacon products.
