Variety description

Oxalis tuberosa comes from the Andes. It is a vigorous ground cover. All ocas grow best in partial shade and shade. Normally it is best to plant oca in May, when the last late frosts are over. However, it is no problem to start cultivation much later, even until the beginning of August. Planting tends to be deep. Oca is fast-growing and starts to form tubers as the days get shorter. 'Oca Tubered' has bright red tubers that look somewhat cone-like. Harvest as late as possible, at the end of October to the beginning of November, when the first night frosts start to affect the foliage. By the way, the harvest is larger than that of potatoes if the ocas are cultivated well. It is important to know that roots and eventually tubers are also formed on the side shoots, wherever the shoots touch the ground. Spreading a few shovels of soil over the plant in August to promote soil contact will therefore increase yields.
