In my opinion, Sunset is the best all-around heirloom oca cultivar. It has been surpassed by some of our new varieties, but it is still among the best. Tubers yellow to orange with purple eyes. Green stems and foliage. One of the top three heirloom varieties for yield. After exposure, flavor brings to mind carrot, slightly sweet, no tartness. You can’t go wrong with Sunset.
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.
