Tubers yellow at harvest, darkening to orange with darker eyes. Flavor is slightly sweet but non-acidic. Although manzana means apple in Spanish, I don’t find the flavor similar to apple. Moderate yields. An heirloom variety from La Paz, Bolivia.
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.
