In produce markets this root is often sold along with the fruits, because that's how it's used. Simply scrape off the thin skin and eat it. The flavor is often described as somewhere between a pear and an apple, but it has its own unique taste. Yacon root may also be roasted, baked or stir-fried, and added to other dishes, but they are so delicious that most people just eat them raw. Plus it is a pre-biotic and anti-oxidant. The health benefits are a bonus!

These yacon roots are for sale in 8-10 oz lots. You may receive one large root or 2-3 smaller roots that will equal 8-10 oz in weight. Why buy processed yacon syrup or the dried powdered form? This is the real deal! Buy yacon now before the season ends!
