Due to these unusual times of CoVid-19 and the extremely high volume of orders that we have received here at Crimson Sage over the last 3 months, we have decided to stop taking new plant orders at this time. We apologize for this inconvenience, but we need some time to fulfill our current orders and to replenish some of our inventory!! Thanks for your understanding, patience, and choosing to shop with a small, woman owned business. It is truly heart warming to see so many folks nationwide planting their Medicinal Gardens. We will be back up and running as soon as we can!

If you have already placed an order with us, we are shipping as much as possible each week and plan to get your orders shipped over the month of June into early July.

Oca

Email
Description

New Zealand Yam.This delicious tuber is almost as widely grown as the potato in the Andes region of South America. Oca plants produce quantities of smaller tubers that are tasty, nutritious, and productive, even in northern gardens!! Rarely grown outside of the Andes bio-region, but highly adaptable. Oca tubers are an excellent addition to the perennial food garden. With clove-like leaves that form a rosette and eventually a sprawling ground cover. The tubers are tasty raw in salads for a lemony tang, or cooked. They are high in protein, vitamin C, potassium, iron and tryptophan, and richer than yams. Plant and hill like a potato, water heavily in Fall for larger tubers. Harvest after plants die back and don't forget to save a few to plant for the next season.Prefers Full sun.Perennial Hardy to Zone 7.

Latin Name Oxalis tuberosa
