First Crosne Harvest. Success!

Postby Durgan » Oct 20, 2008 1:38 pm 20 October 2008 First Crosne Harvest.
Some crosne tubers were dug today, since the vegetation is dying off. the first fork full displayed perfect tubers, 85 in total. Some were eaten raw and some were stir fried in butter. This was my first tasting. The texture is similar to a tender celery heart, without any fiber. Taste is sort of neutral, so they probably take on the flavor of any condiment used when cooked.

The weight of the few dug was 250 grams or about half a pound, and I estimate that there must be about 25 plus pounds in the 32 square foot bed. The remainder will be dug when the vegetation dies completely. Size of tubers was about half an inch diameter and about 1.5 to 2 inches long, larger in the middle than at the ends. Summary: Crosne growing experience.
