SKU: 1704052147 Category:

This listing is for single UBE BULBILS in medium and large sizes only. Please see my other listing if you are interested in buying larger quantities. The pics show both sizes next to a US quarter. SOME ARE ALREADY SPROUTING! Ready to transplant into ground or large container. Easy to grow, full sun preferred but will grow in dappled shade. Be prepared for it to climb!

Purple ice cream, brownies, muffins, donuts, and macarons have become the star of many food photoshoots. The gorgeous hue is due to one ingredient: ube (pronounced ooh-beh).

Ube, meaning tuber in Tagalog, is a purple yam originally from the Philippines. Different than the American purple sweet potato, it has an even sweeter, more mellow taste than its orange relative. Ube has a slightly nutty, vanilla taste and is popularly used in desserts in Filipino cuisine, often boiled and then mashed with condensed & evaporated milk to make Ube Halaya.

Ube has a similar nutritional profile to the good ol’ sweet potato, meaning that it’s high in complex carbs, vitamins, and fiber. The purple variety was also recently shown to have extra-high levels of antioxidants, which can promote overall health.

Plant in well draining soil with a trellis, tree, pole, fence or teepee that the vines can grow up. They can get 20-30 feet long. At the end of the growing season, dig up the large root to use in your baking. Yum!
