Default RARE High yeilding permaculture crops!

Hey guys. message me for an invoice

I have Chinese water chestnut growing corms available.
They taste AMAZING, not like the bland canned ones, fresh water chestnuts are like crunchy super sweet corn!
You have to grow these!

And I have Chinese Potatoes!
I've been growing them a few years now! And yeah, forget trying to grow finicky irish potatoes. These have the high yield, pest/disease resistance, and flavor to make you forget the old white tato! Here's a link to check out.
http://blogs.worldwatch.org/nourishi...otato-potahto/

Message me your email and I'll send an invoice through paypal.
10 growing corms/roots, each $18 shipped, or $32 shipped if you want both.

I also have some nice Florida grown Turmeric roots. Anti cancer/inflammatory, a must have plant to grow for your health.
$15 shipped for enough to grow 20+plants, or just add $12 to another order.
Thank you.

Which variety is your mint potato?
Plectranthus rotundifolius, Solenostemon rotundifolius, Plectranthus esculentus or Plectranthus edulis?
Would you send outside the USA?

What a salesman, LOL!

By the way, Tumeric will not prevent or cure cancer -- it is a marketing myth.

Plectranthus rotundifolius, Solenostemon rotundifolius are the same, and Plectranthus esculentus and Plectranthus edulis are the same.

There are only two varieties here, you just have synonyms.
The later is extremely in the us. It has longer tooth like roots and rotundifolius is more oblong. I have both but rotundifolius is much easier to grow.

You say you're retired? Instead of trolling, go look into some of the studies and accounts of Turmeric use and other very powerful plant based alleviates.

I buy turmeric roots at several different markets. I have orange and white growing. Very easy to get going. Pretty plant. I should probably harvest some since I do use it.

I'm not trolling, I'm stating a fact. And if all you're going to do is make wild claims and personal attacks then expect more comments from me.

In any "medicine", dosage is key. Just because a plant contains compounds that are used derive pharmaceuticals does not mean that eating the plant has any specific benefit.

I am a reader of many scholarly peer-reviewed books and journals on herbs -- I used to sell them, Turmeric included. The statements you've made so far about this plant with regard to cancer are unfounded.

Actually Plectranthus esculentus is a separate species from Plectranthus edulis -- which is a synonym for Plectranthus punctatus subsp. edulis.

Can't resist! I have to... sorry.
To my knowledge and personal experience, I think that turmeric, although very useful and having medicinal properties, is very overrated. You would have to ingest unbelievable amounts of it to be able to, if it actually works, cure and prevent cancer. Best example would be India. They eat lots of it there and there is cancer there too.
That being said, I do use a lot of it because it has properties and it makes food taste great. I buy 5 pounds bags at a time. And I grow it too!
It makes a beautiful plant.
When I get bit by a spider, I put a mixture of turmeric and water on it and it seems to stop the venom and it helps heal way faster. It works on other insect bites too.
These days, everything seems to be the cure for everything on the internet.
I'm not saying to not buy it, on the contrary. It's a great plant that has a lot of great uses.
I have to agree with Richard.
