Lepidium meyenii

Lepidium meyenii or maca is an herbaceous biennial plant of the Brassicaceae family native to the high Andes of Peru. It was found at the Meseta de Bombón (plateau) close to Lake Junin. It is grown for its fleshy hypocotyl (fused with a taproot), which is used as a root vegetable, typically dried to a powder or flour, and a medicinal herb, an aphrodisiac or endocrine supporter.
