Most of this is grown in three regions: West Africa and the adjoining Congo basin, tropical South America and south and Southeast Asia.

Generally cassava reaches maturity in 9-24 months or up to 36 months depending on the variety, climate and soil conditions. Some quick growing cultivars can be harvested in 6-7 months, but good yields are normally obtained after 9-12 months.
Does cassava produce seeds?
Cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) is cultivated throughout the entire Brazilian territory. In cassava this is also true, although it produces botanical seeds, but the typical propagation of cassava is undertaken vegetatively, through pieces of the stems which are commonly known as stem cuttings.
