Yes, cassava forms a tuber covered with a brownish skin. It is used in
the Amazon as potato substitute. If I remember it takes about four
months from planting, using the slash/burn technique common in that
region. It is also made into pies. The plant itself is tall, about six
feet. It is a stem hollow in the middle. That's about all I
remember....:) Micro.
