chufa is a nut like tuber that grows in the ground- its a golden nut that grows just under the ground and turkeys love to scratch em up! Quote from the bag! as long as its planted after the final frost it will mature in 90 to 110 days so i would assume you could plant it anywhere without a frost for 100 days straight! the bag give you full directions on planting and soil preperation and fertilizing instruction. A 9lb. bag is good for a 1/4 acre plot and i paid $20. once it looks like we will be out of the freeze possibility in the northeast i will be planting this stuff and in 90 days we will see what happens!

saw an episode of getting close or something they were hunting over chufa.The turkeys were going crazy trying to get at the stuff

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
