On the contrary, other kinds of yam can grow up to 260 cm each year. When yams are ready to be harvested, two or three people are needed to prevent them from breaking apart. The farm also grows common white yams; as they grow fast and large, they’re a profitable variety. There are also blood yams, field yams and purple yams, among others.
In addition to the DIY yam theme, the Green Bamboo Garden also has other rich “experience activities” in different seasons. Pulling radish in spring is most popular with children. It is fun and fulfilling. You can also experience making radish cakes, grass cakes or dried radish. Because the radish is mature, it has a pungent aroma and strong sweetness, unlike in the market that sells it half-ripe. The radish cakes always make tourists shout out “this is different from the breakfast shop!”
