Yautia/Xanthasoma Sprouting

  • Subject: Yautia/Xanthasoma Sprouting

Dear List,
Every greengrocer in New York City has bins full of Yautia, and quite a 
variety of other tubers - however, they are very heavily waxed and do not 
sprout easily, if at all.  Of course, the purpose of the coating is to 
preserve them and keep them from sprouting - where are their priorities?  
Does anyone know how to safely remove this coating to promote sprouting and 
Thanks - Michael Riley
