Product information "Oca Tuberosa"

Harvest: As late as possible, Nov./Dec.; protect the shoots in autumn before the frost
Root crops: 4 - 9 cm long; forms the largest tubers; many tubers also have lateral tendencies of splitting, which are very pretty, sometimes almost like a sculpture
Flavour: Sour, with a slightly earthy aftertaste, which is lost during baking/cooking; like Tubered, very fruity when baked
Growth: 30 - 40 cm high, covers 0.7 m². Even 'Tuberosa' stops growing in a hot summer, however it starts again in autumn. The shoots are attractively pink-red colored, with good ornamental value
Use: Fresh enjoyment and for baking/cooking; as well puréed

This is a new root crop that the Incas already knew about. The growth is very similar and similarly attractive like the lucky clover; it forms beautiful, red, pink or yellow tubers that are very versatile in autumn. This was our favourite amongst our cooking and tasting tests: chips from the oven with a little olive oil, a heavenly dining experience: unlike potatoes or sweet potatoes, oca can be enjoyed fresh as a snack (with salt, pepper or a dip).
