  • This edible corm of a sedge has long been valued throughout the Orient as a vegetable delicacy and as a source of medicine and starch. Imposition of an embargo in 1950 on commercial shipments from Communist China has promoted interest and experimentation in cultivating it in the climatically milder regions of the New World.
