Giant sweet cassava

Jamaica, Valerie Martin, vice principal and 4H co-ordinator at Port Antonio Primary School, shows of this giant sweet cassava reaped from the 4H garden at the back of the school last Friday morning.

Martin said this was the first time they had reaped a sweet cassava this size and that it was only a portion of the plant that was dug up over the Christmas holidays.

She said they will use the cassava to make bammies, starch and dumplings as they demonstrate its various uses to the 4H students.

The cassava is three feet, eight inches tall and weighs about 30 pounds.
