Project Noah Fact of the Day: Since its introduction to the U.S. at the Philadelphia Centennial Exposition in 1876, an estimated 2 million acres of forest land in the southern United States is covered with kudzu. Kudzu has a massive tap root that can be 7 inches or more in diameter, 6 feet or more in length, and weigh as much as 400 pounds! Kudzu can grow as much as 1 foot per day!
