Oca is Here!!!

The Oca Tubers I ordered from Nichols Garden have finally arrived. I have been looking forward to growing oca in our garden and can't wait to get them planted. They have a really pretty pink blush color and are quite cute. I hope it tastes good as well. Since I am taking part of the growing challenge I am trying things this year that I have never grown before. I read about oca in Mother Earth News last year, but I had trouble finding some to order. This also means that my Yacon starts should be arriving sometime soon.

I'll be interested to hear about the taste of Oca (which I've never heard of) and Yacon (which I'm totally curious about). I tried sunchokes this past year and was underwhelmed by them.
