Cassava or so-called Manioca or Tapioca is one of America's most used plants in the period before Columbus. Pollen from it, dating back to 4600 BC, was found in the lowlands of the Gulf of Mexico in San Andres, Tabasco. The earliest direct testimonies of culture have been discovered during archaeological excavations in Salvador. They prove that the Mayans cultivated Cassava for food before 1400.
