Tiger Nut are a bunch grass with a peanut like an 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 chufa the same way. Plant in spring through summer. Wildlife digs up the Tiger Nut  once they mature.

Tiger Nut  are a perennial sedge that is one of the most popular foods for wild turkeys. Tiger Nut  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.

Tiger Nut  plants grow well in the southern half of the US from Northern California across to Southern Iowa and even Southern Pennsylvania. Tiger Nut  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, Tiger Nut  will grow anywhere that corn can be successfully grown.
