Wishkah is a Cultivariable original variety, introduced in 2015. Wishkah has the highest average tuber size of any variety that we grow. We actually have a hard time coming up enough for small packets because the plants just don’t produce very many small tubers. It is similar to the heirloom variety Sunset, but with better production of more uniform tubers. Dense yellow flesh that is mild and moderately sweet. Begins forming tubers about two weeks before the autumn equinox.
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.
