Oca information and growing instructions

This is one of our more interesting seed grown ocas.  Although it is not particularly high yielding, it has excellent flavor and the unusual ability to flower in warmer, drier conditions than any other variety in our collection.  This variety has flowered two years in a row in a couple locations in the central valley of California, which is a climate where oca flowers are rarely seen.  Because of that, it could serve as a foundation for growers wishing to breed better locally adapted varieties in warmer climates than oca normally tolerates.  An open source variety.
