Cassava (Manihot esculenta) is a starch-tuber in the spurge family (Euphorbiaceae) of plants. It has its origins from the South-American forests. It has come to be a staple food for the indigenous people of many parts of Africa, Asia, and South America for centuries.

It is grown a perennial crop, one that grows best under tropical, moist, fertile, and well-drained soils. The mature plant reaches about 2-4 m in height. In the fields, its cut-stem sections are planted in soil to propagate. After about 8-10 months of the plantation, the tubers grow downwards in a radial fashion, deep into the soil up to the depth of 2-4 feet.

Each tuber weighs one to several pounds depending on the typenof cultivation involved. It exterior is gray-brown, and has a rough and woody texture. Its interior is white and starch-rich.
