A Cultivar by Imperator-Zor A Cultivar by Imperator-Zor
A fictional cultivar. A monocot, this plant provides two forms of valuable foodstuffs. The most substantial of these are the yellowish tubers that it grows underground. The second are grain which grows in it's tuft after flowering. Harvesting this plant involves cutting off the tuft, then digging the remainder of the plant up to extract the tubers before replanting it along with any immature tubers. Each plant can be harvested up to five times, but are usually harvested thrice as they generally decline in productivity or die after that. The stems of these plants can be retted afterwards for fibers, but these are course and are generally used for cheap twine. These plants evolved in an area with a distinct cycle of a rainy and dry season and do well in fairly dry soil so long as they are well watered annually. These plants can yield two productive harvests a year with proper management, but are fairly labor intensive to fully exploit.
