Harvesting desmanthus lebtolobus I have spread.
    #2922216 - 07/23/04 11:27 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Seems like I have accomplished spreading the desmanthus lebtolobus around within about a mile range. What I started cultivating on my back porch is now all over the place. Some I have seen are 7 ft+. What do I do to harvest these things? I have seen extraction teks, but no harvesting tek/faq. Thanks, K+

Desmanthus is tricky to harvest. We have leptolobus and illinoinsis naturalized here. I actually constantly get in debates whether the leptolobus is actually a different plant in the mimosa genus..(cats claw / or briar ... I believe..) do your plants have pink or white flowers? Do they have small thorns covering the entire plant?

Anyways, you must harvest the roots then harvest the root bark while the roots are still fresh. It is even more difficult when they are dried. The roots can travel very deep so you will need some good equipment. I recommend doing this when the ground is soft and possibly wet. Dig deep a foot or so around the plant in diameter and keep digging down till you think you've got to the end of the roots. It would be a waste to cut it short. Go ahead and uproot the entire plant. You can "field dress" it by using a sharp knife to seperate the rootbark from the inner root or you can just throw it in a trash bag to take to your work area to do so.

I would recommend waiting untill the plants have set seed and the individual pods are about to open ( before the seeds fall out). This would be the most profitable way to harvest the plant.


Good luck.
