Maca is a root vegetable from the Andes, renowned for its powers as an aphrodisiac, homone sorter-outer for women, a stamina enhancer and miracle adaptogen. I first heard about it from Sara of 'Sarah's Choice' who I met at the AGM of the Organic Trust last year. We were sitting beside each other at lunch and got chatting. I tried it and it did seem to have some good effects. So, I ordered some seeds from Horizon herbs. They have grown slowly throughout the summer, and one has set seed. They are not the most photogenic of plants.
