Xander root is a consumable item in Fallout: New Vegas.


Xander root is a large, turnip-like root with mild healing properties. It can easily be identified by its exposed head and tall green stalk protruding from a raised ring of dirt, resembling an onion. Once collected, xander root can be used in the crafting of both healing powder and stimpaks. Xander roots have the ability to grow again once picked. They are commonly growing around trails and around the mouths of caves.

Some traders "sell" xander root, despite it not being worth any caps. Therefore, if you "buy" it off the traders, they can be "bought" for free.
