This lovely variety was selected by one of our customers from our true oca seed. It has the largest average tuber size of any of the varieties that we carry with long-styled flowers, so I expect that it will be valuable for breeding. Beyond that, the tubers are a very pretty red color, with a core of red flesh as well. The flavor is moderately acidic.
What you will receive:
You will receive the stated number of tubers, packaged in a wax envelope. We grade tubers by passing them through a grate. Small tubers are those that won’t fall through a 1/3″ grate, but that will fall through a 1 inch grate. Medium/large tubers are those that will not fall through a 1 inch grate.
Seeds are open pollinated. Because oca is a polyploid hybrid, the seeds will not grow true to type. They are suitable for use in breeding or conservation efforts and could be used to select varieties similar to the parent type.
