Tiger nut — "sativus"

Cyperus esculentus


This is the domesticated cultivar that does not spread by runners.

This is a distinct cultivar, and does not become weedy at all, and as such is NOT regulated by weed laws . This is because it is sterile, and does not produce seed, is not freeze-hardy (Zone 8), and also does not produce runners—the tubers are held right below the plant.
