This item is a pre-order for our 2017 crop, to be delivered between fall 2017 and spring 2018.
White is a top yielding variety, with good quantities of bulky tubers. Color is uniform white to pale yellow. Very high yield. After exposure, flavor is still very tart and brings to mind both potato and sour apple. Green stems and foliage. This may be an example of sour oca, a category of varieties that are more commonly used for processing than fresh eating.
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.
