Farmer George and his 14-foot-long cassava

Saturday, April 16 2016

RECENT statements by Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley about cassava has put this simple root produce in the limelight. And one farmer in Borde Narve, off Princes Town, is certainly in the spotlight after he harvested a giant cassava in his garden yesterday.

George Curtis, 74, a former cane farmer of Inverness Road got quite a shock when he dug up a 14-foot-long cassava yesterday. He said it was the first time in his life he had ever seen such a long cassava.

He said he planted the Butterstick MX cassava about seven to eight months ago. Yesterday he went into the garden to get some cassava and he began digging carefully so as not to cut the cassava but as he continued digging he realized it was just going on and on and on...14-feet-long to be exact. Curtis who is a widower said he plans to cook some of the cassava and share the rest with his neighbour
