> Hello All,.. I am looking for sources of:
> -Arracacia xanthorrhiza, Arracacha
Oregon Exotics (if they're still retail. Let me know.), Sunny Lands
Seeds, Box 385, Paradox (that's for sure), Colorado 81429 970-859-7248
are the two listed in Cornucopia Two (which you should get a copy of,
Larry. We still sell it. $45 + 10% shipping).
> -Ulluco tuberosus, Melloco.
I'd check with the folks at Occidental Arts and Ecology Center. I think
they've been growing it for several years. It's related to Malabar Spinach.
> -Lepidium meyenii, Maca.
I've corrected the spelling above to correspond to the Latin names in
Lost Crops of the Incas and Cornucopia
Herbs-Liscious, 1702, S 6th St, Marshalltown, IA 50158,, 515-752-4976
Janca's Jojoba Oil and Seed Co, 456 East Juanita #7, Mesa, AZ 85204,
That stuff's reputed to be an aphrodisiac. If its that quality you seek,
look into epimedium sagittatum, or horny goat weed. Easy to grow in
fairly deep shade....and it works ;-) .
> also -"Mandarin Melon Berry"(TM)
> "... from the swampy Yangtze deltas on China's east coast..."
I got mine from Edible Landscaping, PO Box 77, Afton Va. 22920,
1-800-524-4156 He's got several large specimens there that are just
gorgeous and thriving. He grafts cuttings onto seedlings and he has a lot.
