    These areas always produce big vegetation. I remember growing up, my grand father would have the biggest yams and dasheen from delaford. Just one of them would kill me to carry up the hills. It sure looks like a leg.

    What a humongous cassava. That is a mutation of sorts and perhaps should not be consumed.

    Wow, Great job, should make the Guinness World Records. Didn’t think the patch I saw earlier this year would produce such a huge cassava. Never seen one so big, looks like a prosthetic leg, LOL.
