Oca information and growing instructions

This is an heirloom variety originally from Cusco, Peru.  Collected by Ben Kamm of Sacred Succulents; variety names that begin with BK are his collection numbers.

Initially, I wasn’t very impressed by this variety.  For the first few years that we grew it, it didn’t produce very well.  Then it started to get better and turned out a really good performance in 2016.  The tubers are yellow with red eyes and mostly in the two to four inch range.  The eyes are a little bit scale like and the tubers are somewhat flattened, which makes this variety easy to distinguish from the many other yellow and red varieties.  I’d still call this one an intermediate yielder, at least until it puts in some more performances like 2016.  The flavor is pretty mild with no detectable acidity after exposure to sunlight. Typically a shy flowerer with a short styled flower morph.
