Kūmara – Behind the Scenes

Kūmara – Behind the Scenes.

by Trish Puharich; illustrations by Scott Pearson

There’s nothing quite like a bowl of tasty kūmara fries or wedges. Yum! But where does that kūmara come from? Some people grow their own kūmara or buy it from a market, but most people in Aotearoa buy their kūmara from a supermarket. Have you ever wondered how the kūmara gets to the supermarket?
