Oca - Oxalis Tuberosa
I have a few new things I am planting this year. Oca is considered one of the lost plants of the Incas and is second to only the potato in root crops in some European countries. I am planting about 5 different varieties of the Oca. I planted three indoors and they have germinated and are doing well. The others should be sprouting any day now. You are supposed to harvest them about a month after the tops have died during the fall. They can be cooked as tomatoes, added raw to salads, eaten in soups, or added to stir-fries. I had a hard time finding a source for the tubers but I expect they will become more abundant in the future as permaculture continues its growth.
