Oca Seed Tubers

Oca Seed Tubers

I have recently harvested my oca and have a lot of seed tubers available. Please e-mail me if you are interested. I really enjoy the tubers roasted as a side dish to meat like lamb, roast beef etc.

I would love some oca tubers, please !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, please!! I have a small organic fruits/herbs/flowers/veggies farm in Illinois. I planted oca for the first time last year and had a small harvest. Oca seed tubers are so hard to find/purchase so I would LOVE some of yours!!! Please reply to THANK YOU!!!

I'd really like some oca

I'm a paleoethnobotanist and I study the ancient use of plants by people. I need some oca for my comparative collection. After tasting some in Ecuador last year, I also find then really tasty and would like to grow some in my garden - they will do very well in our short cool summers here in Calagary, Canada.

I would love to get some oca if you still have any to spare. I am from New Zealand and have NZ friends here in Michigan and we would love to try and grow some and enjoy a taste of home. We grew up eating it and haven't found it here in the States.

I'd really like some, please

I'd really like some of your oca tubers. I've been looking for a source that will mail to Canada but have not been successful.

Please contact me if you have any left.

Thanks so much !

An ancient staple that's so hard to find

I am moving very soon, so I don't have a mailing address, but do you know where I can order enough oca to plant a bed? Also, is it possible to save seeds or do they only reproduce with tubers? I want to grow my own and share with others, and maybe breed for flavor.

Any left?

Those oca look great. Any idea whether they would grow in Texas? If you still have any seed tubers left, I'd love to try them. Thanks!
