Product Description

We have had problems producing enough of this variety to meet demand, so it is not available for pre-order.

Oca information and growing instructions

“New Zealand Red” is a popular name for oca.  We’ve managed to collect no less than six varieties with that name, which makes things confusing at times.  The Kiwis are no help, as it seems they usually don’t bother labeling the varieties, so nobody can solve the mystery of which is the “real” New Zealand Red.  We’ve settled on calling this one “Heirloom Red” as it came to us with a batch of other NZ Heirloom varieties.

This one comes out of the ground pink and darkens up quite a bit over the next few weeks.  It’s a nice variety, but not a stand-out for us.  Plants were medium sized, same with the tubers, flowering was moderate, and yield as well.
