How does maca grow?
Maca is a self-pollinating plant that has two distinct annual growth cycles, one to produce and select medicinal maca roots (hypocotyls) for consumption (Cycle 1) and the second to select optimum maca seeds (rosettes) for planting (Cycle 2). Each cycle takes approximately 9-12 months, with a 3-month drying period post-harvest.
All ploughing, planting and harvesting is done manually by hand the way it has been done for centuries.
