They are quite hard and are generally soaked in water before they can be eaten. They have various uses, in particular they are used in Spain to make horchata. They are sometimes known by their Spanish name, chufa. Other common names for these tubers are "earthalmond" and "yellow nutsedge".


The tubers were originally cultivated for common commercial production is almost exclusively in the Valencia region of Spain.
