This is a lovely heirloom variety was collected in the Lake Titicaca region in the 1990s. The peach to orange skin color is not common in oca. Flavor is just slightly acidic, kind of a potato/carrot combination, I think. Very good yields. I think this could become one of our most popular varieties. A moderate flowerer with fair seed set.
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.
