Description

Tiger Nuts (Cyperus Esculentus) also called chufa sedge, earth almond etc are small, wrinkled brown coloured tubers (small round nuts) that grow under the soil’s surface. These nuts are edible, with a sweet, milky and somewhat nutty taste.

They are a popular nut in Europe as well especially in Spain (called chufas), where they are used to make a milky drink known as ‘Horchata de Chufa’ in Spain, which is similar to KunnuAya (a Northern Nigeria beverage).

Tiger Nuts are a highly nutritious plant and contain a large number of antioxidants. They are high in fibre content, free from lactose and are a healthy substitute for lactose intolerance. They are also rich in Vitamins C and E amongst other benefits.

Cultivation period is March to December
