Pink Dragon was one of the first new varieties of oca to be grown from seed outside the Andes. Pink/Red tubers have a mild flavor. Plants are tall and vigorous and flower abundantly.
There is just one problem with this variety: it doesn’t store as well as most. It will be fine for a couple of months, but the tubers start to wither after that. They will still last long enough to plant, but they are often not appealing to eat by then.
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.
