Chufas Food Plot Seed (Cyperus esculentus)

Chufas are great for Turkey, Deer and other wildlife. Plant 25-50 lbs. - per acre

Chufas are a bunch grass with a peanut like underground nut - used for food plots of deer, turkey, hogs and wild hogs. This legume is very similar to peanuts, if you have ever seen hogs rooting peanuts, they go after chufas the same way. Plant in spring through summer. Wildlife digs up the chufas once they mature.

Chufas are perennial sedges that are one of the most popular foods for wild turkeys. Chufa plants have underground tubers, which are part of the plant that turkeys eat. One chufas tuber will produce a plant that can grow to 15-75 tubers when mature. Turkeys find the tubers by scratching them from just under the surface of the ground. The tubers are high in protein and fat, which makes them especially nutritious for wild turkeys. Chufa can also make an excellent food source for other wildlife including deer and ducks.

Chufa plants grow well in the southern half of the US from Northern California across to Southern Iowa and even Southern Pennsylvania. Chufa plants grow in a variety of soil, but perform best on well-drained, sandy or loamy soils. Clay soils can support chufa. When growing in clay soils, lightly turn the soil in the fall to expose the tubers. This practice can be done periodically to extend the food supply into winter and early spring. Simply plow several strips twice a month until the entire field has been plowed. Generally, chufa will grow anywhere that corn can be successfully grown.

1 of 5 Review?? April 14, 2020
Reviewer: John Johnston from Muskogee, OK United States  
Wouldn't it be better to review after you finally give the order to USPS for delivery? You've only had 6 days from the notice it's been shipped to actually turn the order for delivery.

4 of 5 Great product June 9, 2019
Reviewer: Tom Buratovich from Visalia, CA United States  
The package came and I opened it and it smelled like earth, farmland.  Soaked them for 24 hours and then put them in the freezer and take out a couple handfuls for my nut mix.  They soft and nutty.  Very good product.
