Brian,

Wish you the best of luck on finding these rarities, hopefully someone here can share.

For the Ahipa (Pachyrhizus ahipa) and Arracacha (Arracacia xanthorrhiza), Cultivariable occasionally has them in stock, I believe based on their personal harvests. Suggest signing up for their waitlists. The site has tons of great tubers and vegetables.

Cultivariable.com is a great place to get rare genetics of Andean root crops!
A few folks down in the South might want to try growing a few of them. I have seen folks have limited success with growing yacon in Florida.
The other tubers like oca, mashua, and ulluco are a lot more difficult to cultivate in the sweltering heat and humidity. Heck, even some of the folks in the Pacific Northwest are having challenges at growing certain ulluco varieties due to their specific growing parameters...

Teach a man to fish, and he will be able to catch fish for life.

Teach a man to nurture plants, and he will be able to eat durian, soursop, mangosteen, papaya, rambutan, and guava fruits for life!
