Product Description

This item is a pre-order for our 2017 crop, to be delivered between fall 2017 and spring 2018.

One of the top three varieties for the Pacific Northwest, along with Sunset and Hopin. Bolivian Red may not be quite as tolerant of summer heat as the other two, but should be very happy in maritime climates.  A nice looking variety with dark red skin and yellow eyes.  Bulky tubers.  After exposure, flavor is nutty, brings to mind sweet potato, no tartness.  One of the best flavored ocas in our opinion.  Dark red stems make this plant a good choice for an ornamental edible.
