Oca oxalis.

North Yorkshire, United Kingdom Gb

I am not a veg grower but I love anything different. I just bought some seed Oca oxalis. The instructions are simply 'plant late April, early May . Do not harvest before November'. Anybody got any real details on this plant please?




Hi John,
I have never grown these myself, but I know you need lots of patience to grow them.
If you Google them you should be able to find out more about them.
Hope you enjoy your new adventure.

Hi, John,

I know nothing about this vegetable. What is it, and why did you buy it? Is it from S. America or Chile?

Don't forget that I plan on becomming the UGNI King of Sequim. Forget the lavender -- stinky little shrub that it is.

I will have the Ugni corner on food. Ugni burgers, Ugni bangers (in your case), Ugni Pemmican and finally Ugni shakes. I think I am on to a real winner here.

Thanks Bob. I'll Google them. Just thought that if someone on here had grown them I might get a few sensible tips.
