Mocrocks is a 2015 introduction with good tuber size and yield; its seedling produced the highest yield that we have seen from seed at just over a kilogram. Beautiful dark red tubers with a core of dark red flesh as well. Once exposed to light for a week or two, it develops a very sweet flavor. Unfortunately, it isn’t a great flowerer, but it is hard to get everything in one variety. Mid-styed flowers, starting here in mid-June and usually wrapping up by the end of July. Tuberization photoperiod is about 13 hours, making it two to three weeks earlier than most of the heirloom varieties.
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.
