Yucca Schidigera

Yucca schidigera is also known as Mojave yucca or Spanish dagger. It is an evergreen flowering plant.

Subfamily: Agavoideae
Family: Asparagaceae

It grows in the Mojave Desert, Chihuahuan Desert and Sonoran Desert in the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico.

These areas have extreme climate conditions due to great diurnal temperature variations.

As a result of these harsh conditions, the Yucca schidigera plant collects and synthesises various substances. The collection of these substances allows it to survive.

Apart from polyphenols and resveratrol, Mojave yucca has the highest content of saponins.

In long dry periods, the Yucca schidigera is the queen of the desert. It can survive in even the most demanding circumstances.

The Navajo and Cherokee Native Americans have used Yucca for centuries as a supplement in their daily diet. They also used parts of the Yucca to make various useful products.

The stem of Yucca is tough, which makes it ideal for weaving. The roots of a Yucca plant can also be used to make soap.
