But the sticker on the vegetable itself says, “Cal Fresco Yuca Root, PLU #4819, Produce of Costa Rica”—with one “C”.
Is this the correct PLU/produce code, and, if not, what PLU should we look for?
I honestly don’t know what your local Dominick’s carries, but of course I’m speaking of “yucca” and not “yuca.” Yucca schidigera is actually the correct name. You can also get supplements in powder or capsule form which may be the safest way to be certain you’re purchasing the correct substance.
