Oca, Mixed Colors (Oxalis tuberosa) potted plant, organic

(3 customer reviews)

$8.50

Family: Oxalis (Oxalidaceae)

Hardy to Zones 6 to 12, otherwise grown as an annual, 180 days to tubers

Andean foodcrop rivalling potatoes in taste and exceeding them substantially in handsomeness.  Highly nutritious tuber with brilliant colors that make a welcome change from the potato.  Loaded with carbohydrate, calcium, iron and an excellent balance of amino acids.  Plant prefers full sun to part shade, moist soils, and is best hilled up as it grows, to promote formation of the tubers.  Requires 6 months from time of planting to time of harvest.  After aerial portions reach full size it will take the plants another 3 months to mature their tubers. Cool but frost-free conditions are favored.  Potted plants consist of the varicolored (mostly red or golden) tuber(s) in the pot and may be sold on the basis of a live tuber in a pot or on the basis of a plant, depending on growth cycle.
