Peru

Sourced from across the globe

Maca is reputed to have natural insect-repellent properties and is sometimes grown alongside other highland crops such as bitter potatoes, as Andean farmers believe it protects the underground tubers from pests. In the Junín region of Peru maca is consumed in large quantities as it provides a readily available and highly nutritious food source in areas where traditional agricultural practices struggle.

Maca today thrives in these hostile environments, only growing at altitudes above 3,500 metres on poor rocky soils where acidity may exceed pH5, and is able to withstand high winds and temperatures as low as -10°C.
